People with cystic fibrosis often rely on the services of specialist CF centres for their care, although some may attend hospitals closer to home if there is no specialist centre nearby.
To ensure that they receive the best possible treatment, we have developed Standards of Care in the form of consensus documents covering aspects of CF care such as nursing, physiotherapy, antibiotics and CF-related diabetes.
Our Peer Review programme regularly reviews CF centres against our standards of care, facilitating improvements in the care provided. The UK CF Registry, an anonymised database of patient information assists with monitoring this care.
Through the Peer Review programme and our programme of events, including the UK Cystic Fibrosis Conference, we help clinicians, researchers and patient groups share best practice to ensure the highest quality of care for everyone with cystic fibrosis.
