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.

Welcome to the Exeter CF Research page!


It is a hugely exciting time for CF Research, with many clinical trials and research projects going on. Various topics are being investigated including studies looking at quality of life and investigating new treatments, as well as comparing existing treatments.

The CF Trust have launched the Clinical Trials Accelerator Platform (often shortened to CTAP) to help increase participation and improve access to clinical trials for people with CF in the UK. Exeter has been awarded CTAP status for both adult and paediatric services meaning Exeter is part of a network leading CF Research in the UK.

As part of the Accelerator Platform, Exeter has appointed a full time CF Trials Coordinator Sophie Whiteley who facilitates trial set up and running at Exeter with the Research Nurses and Practitioners alongside your usual care team. If you have any questions about research or are interested in taking part in a study, please contact Sophie at s.whiteley1@nhs.net or 01392 406981

The CF Trust has many resources with information about taking part in research. What are clinical trials? Follow this link to the CF Trust clinical trials hub, where you can also access information about taking part in clinical trials and the trials tracker (to see where research is happening around the UK)
