Pharmacy update: we have switched Homecare high cost drug provision from Lloyds  to Sciensus. This will involve a transition period over the next few months where you may still have outstanding deliveries from Lloyds whilst all patients  prescriptions move across. Apologies for any inconvenience during this transition.

If you have not had a delivery from Sciensus yet, you will unfortunately not know which company holds your current prescription. So for the next few months when arranging a delivery we ask that you contact  Lloyds first (Tel 0345 2636 123) followed by  Sciensus if Lloyds unable to help (Tel 0333 103 9499). If you experience any problems  please then contact your clinical team. Once you receive a delivery from Sciensus you will not need to contact Lloyds again.

We have experienced delays due to staffing shortages at both Homecare companies, so please plan your next delivery when you still have  3-4 weeks of medication left to avoid being left short.

Financial Support


Cystic fibrosis can bring its own financial burden, so the CF Trust provide a range of grants for people with cystic fibrosis and their families that struggle to meet these – review the attached link to their document.

Locally, the East Devon Quality of Life fund offers financial support via the facebook group and website.

Personal Independence Payment (PIP) helps with some of the extra costs caused by long-term ill-health or a disability if you’re aged 16- 64. The CF Trust document talks you through how to apply, the assessment criteria and how to reflect your needs appropriately – an adviser is available through the CF Trust to support you with this if needed. Email: helpline@cysticfibrosis.org.uk

The Joseph levy Fund can help support young people with CF wanting to go into higher education – www.jlef.org.uk

As a team we may not be able to resolve your financial issues but do talk to us as we may be able to identify ways to support you further and signpost you to those who can help.
