The Cystic Fibrosis Trust comprises branches and groups throughout the United Kingdom who work to improve the lives of cystic fibrosis (CF) sufferers through information, advice and advocacy, raise the profile of cystic fibrosis and fund research into a cure and better treatments.
The CF Trust now provides a UK wide Advocacy Service. Advocates who all have cystic fibrosis and are located across the whole of the United Kingdom actively seek the views and concerns of the CF population. This includes all patients, young and grown up and their families. It is not an individual complaints service, the advocates represent groups of patients and act as their voice in raising concerns with clinicians, CF Teams and with the authorities who allocate resources for CF services.
