The cystic fibrosis psychology service assesses patients and provides treatment to support them with a range of psychological issues.
These include helping you with:
- Psychological issues from living with cystic fibrosis (CF)
- Coping with managing symptoms and procedures
- Anxiety, depression and loss relating to CF
- Lifestyle and behaviour-change relating to CF.
We can also offer support to your carers and family members.
Team of professionals
We work closely with hospital staff from the regional CF team. Part of our work is to provide consultation, training, supervision and support for staff working in the cystic fibrosis services.
Where will I be seen?
You may be seen on a hospital ward during a hospital stay, or we could arrange a home visit if necessary.
How can I be referred into the service?
Members of the regional CF team can refer you to our service.
If you think you might benefit from our services, please talk to your consultant or other member of the cystic fibrosis healthcare team.
