Oxford Adult Cystic Fibrosis Centre clinics

Cystic fibrosis (CF) clinics are held in the outpatient department of the Oxford Centre for Respiratory Medicine.

Patients who have certain infections, such as B. cepacia or M. abscessus, will have their appointments on the Respiratory Day Case Unit. Clinics take place every Thursday morning with occasional extra clinics held on other days.

When you arrive at the clinic, please use the hand gel or wash your hands. The receptionist will book you in and check your weight. We will then show you to a clinic room, where you stay for the rest of your appointment, with members of our team coming in to see you as necessary.

Clinic appointments usually take one to two hours, depending on which members of the team you need to see.

At every clinic visit you should expect to see:

  • a doctor
  • a physiotherapist
  • a dietitian
  • a specialist nurse.

You may also see:

  • a pharmacist
  • a social worker
  • a clinical psychologist.

You will have your spirometry (lung function test) checked at every visit.

Specialist clinics

We run a number of specialist clinics aiming to provide high-quality care for various important aspects of cystic fibrosis.

Transition clinics

Teenagers with CF who attend the Oxford Paediatric CF Centre are invited to attend our quarterly transition clinics from the age of 15. Both the paediatric and adult CF teams come to these clinics which are a great way for patients to get ready for moving to the adult service.

Transition clinics alternate between the Churchill and John Radcliffe Hospitals.

Joint CF - Diabetes Clinics

CF - Diabetes clinics are held approximately every six weeks with Dr Rustam Rea and Dr Alistair Lumb, Diabetes Consultants from the Oxford Centre for Diabetes, Endocrinology and Metabolism (OCDEM).

Joint CF - Bone Health Clinics

We are joined by Prof Nigel Arden from the Nuffield Orthopaedic Centre for our joint CF- Bone Health clinics which take place twice per year.

Joint CF - Liver Disease Clinics

Twice-yearly CF - Liver Disease clinics are run with Dr Jane Collier, Consultant Hepatologist at the John Radcliffe Hospital.
