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.

Nutritional Support

The Exeter CF dietician team work with both children and adults to support CF care, providing continuity and a friendly face as you transition between services. Nutrition plays a vital role in the health of people with cystic fibrosis – a healthy nutritional status and body weight is vital for maximising and maintaining lung function. We support from the early days of infant feeding, introduction of weaning right through to adulthood.

We advise and provide information for patients on all aspects of their nutritional needs: assessment of pancreatic enzyme replacement therapy (enzymes), supplementary nutritional support (supplement drinks and tube feeding), fat soluble vitamin therapy and salt supplements, cystic fibrosis related diabetes, sports nutrition and healthy eating.

We work closely with patients and families providing practical advice on food choices and how meals can be adapted to meet their CF needs. We work closely with our CF Diabetes Specialist Nurse in the diagnosis and management of Cystic Fibrosis Related Diabetes and the additional dietary needs this brings.
