It's that time of year everyone. We'll be getting our flu jabs soon here at the hospital, this helps to protect you when you come through to see us. We also recommend that you get a flu jab done. Your GP should contact you to arrange this; the best time to get it done is usually from the beginning of October to early November. If you don't hear from your GP over the next few weeks, please contact them. If you have a problem getting the flu jab then contact us. You can read more about the flu jab here.

Every year there is a European CF conference. This year it was in Lisbon from 12th -15th June and Dr Thomas and Tracey Daniels went to it. The picture may look like we were having fun, fun, fun but we also spent many hours each day in meetings and lectures. We plan to write a summary of interesting talks that we went to so that you are aware of what's happening in the treatment for CF world.
