The North West Midlands Cystic Fibrosis (CF) Centre is a designated centre providing care for children and adults with CF across North and South Staffordshire, Burton, Shropshire and Wolverhampton.  The centre’s paediatric and adult multi-disciplinary teams contain motivated and highly skilled individuals.  The high quality care offered by both teams and the excellent facilities were highlighted in a recent CF Trust peer review.  Patients will receive input from our teams during inpatient hospital stays, outpatient visits to clinic and care whilst at home.
