All routine cystic fibrosis, lung defence and immunology clinics at Royal Papworth Hospital are currently being done via video or telephone calls, but patients will be given a face-to-face appointment where required. 

If you need a procedure, bloods, treatment or an in-person review we are able to arrange these through our ambulatory care service and will let you know if you need to attend the hospital for your appointment. Please only attend the hospital if you have been invited to.

The CF, lung defence and immunology patient support programme continues to be run by staff from Royal Papworth Hospital working both on site and remotely. 

If you need to pick up medication or equipment, or have your port-a-cath flushed – please contact us via the emails below at least a week before this is needed and we will arrange this for you. Please ask relatives or friends to collect medication or equipment for you. We will only be able to send things out to you in exceptional circumstances.

If you require clinical advice please contact us via the emails below. We will aim to continue access where safely possible to outpatient and inpatient IV antibiotic therapy.
