Profile of Dr. Vallings:
Dr Rosamund Vallings MNZM, MB BS (Lond), MRCS LRCP, Dip Clin Hyp, BA (Massey)

I have run a medical practice since 1966, and the practice has become specialised over the past 30 years, with most patients suffering from Chronic Fatigue Syndrome (CFS/ME), Fibromyalgia and related conditions. I am closely involved in diagnosing and managing these patients who mostly come on referral from other doctors from all over New Zealand. I participate in regular seminars for these patients, and have produced an education booklet and a number of information sheets for patients. I have written a book on the diagnosis and management of CFS/ME which was published in September 2012.

I am medical adviser to the ANZMES – the local national organisation supporting those with CFS/ME. I have been involved in GP and student education at the University of Auckland and have also spoken to medical groups around NZ. I have regularly attended international CFS/ME conferences and presented papers. I always produce a detailed report from these conferences for international distribution. I have visited a number of CFS/ME centres overseas, and maintain contact with many overseas CFS/ME organisations.

I am a board member and secretary of the International Association for CFS/ME (IACFS) and currently write their regular newsletter.

I have been involved in planning and implementing a pilot programme for education of social welfare case workers. I have reviewed the overseas guidelines for the diagnosis and management of CFS/ME for the NZ Guidelines Group, with a view to providing a set of NZ guidelines. I have recently been involved with the IACFS in producing a physicians’ primer to be used internationally, and I have also participated in an international group based in Canada producing a recently published updated consensus definition for the illness.

I have frequently been involved in collaborative research both in NZ and overseas.

In January 2008, I was awarded the Membership of the NZ Order of Merit for services to CFS/ME in the Queen’s New Years Honours.

Hi Tom,

Thank you for posting this information - it's not a problem at all. The opposite in fact! I'm sure it will be very useful for many visitors to the site. Anyone with ME who is able would benefit greatly from hearing Dr. Vallings speak.

Thanks again Tom!
