Information for Professionals

Clinics

The following page aims to direct professionals to relevant information regarding the local Teesside Cystic Fibrosis services and national Standards of Care

The Teesside Cystic Fibrosis service operates a strict segregation policy in order to minimise the risk of cross infection to our patients. This is in line with the ‘Standards of Care’ document produced by the CF Trust

Appointments are allocated to these clinics based on the patients sputum microbiological status. If patients need to be seen outside routine clinic times, this is facilitated by the Specialist Nurses or CF Physiotherapist.
