Fibromyalgia is a common condition with symptoms of pain, fatigue and sleep disturbance, however there is not much evidence on how to best organise health services for patients with this condition. This project aims to improve healthcare services for patients with fibromyalgia. The study will work with patients and healthcare professionals to understand the current healthcare provided to patients and how services are organised. By the end of the study we will have developed a new model of care for people with fibromyalgia, by prioritising what people with fibromyalgia think is important.
