Welcome to the Royal Devon University Healthcare Cystic Fibrosis team, based in Exeter. Our website aims to provide an introduction to the services we offer here in Exeter and North Devon. We have pulled together some of our local resources as well as linking you to some relevant national sites. Further information is available directly from the team.
The Exeter CF Centre is recognised as one of the UK’s specialist CF Centres. Our service offers an experienced multidisciplinary team who aim to provide comprehensive care, meeting high quality National (NHSE) standards while meeting the individual needs and geography of our patients. We are fortunate to deliver both Paediatric and Adult care within the same hospital, providing continuity into adulthood and ease of transition between services. CF Annual Registry Data shows that we are consistently one of the top UK centres when assessed by lung function, weight and prevention of pseudomonas colonisation. Team members contribute widely to ongoing CF research and publications, continuing to drive forward CF care nationally and internationally. See here for a sample of recent publications.
As a Centre we have been selected as an accredited Clinical Trials Accelerator Platform (CTAP) Centre by the CF Trust. We offer our patients the opportunity to take part in clinical trials where appropriate to individual needs (please see our Research page for more information on this exciting area). 2019 Registry data shows that we recruited the highest percentage of our adult patients to clinical trials of any UK CTAP centre!.
