Oxford Adult Cystic Fibrosis Centre clinics

We currently offer a mix of virtual and face-to-face CF clinics for your routine care.

If you are not attending in person we favour using virtual appointments using the NHS Attend Anywhere video consultation platform, although some appointments can take place over the phone.

All face-to-face Cystic fibrosis (CF) clinics are currently held in the Outpatients Blue Area at the John Radcliffe Hospital.

We run segregated clinics on a Wednesday afternoon for patients with certain infections such as B. cepacia or M. Abscessus,when patients without these infections will not be in the department.

When you arrive at a face-to-face clinic, please wear a face mask and 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.

If attending a virtual clinic, please use the Attend Anywhere link to join at your allocated appointment time.

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 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 from the Oxford Paediatric CF Centre and also District General Hospitals are invited to attend our twice-yearly transition clinics from the age of 15.

Members of both the paediatric and adult CF teams come to these clinics, which are a great way for patients to get ready to move to the adult service.

Transition clinics may be held either in the Oxford Children's Hospital outpatient area or the Outpatients Blue Area at the John Radcliffe Hospital.

Joint CF - Diabetes Clinics

Joint 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 - Liver Disease Clinics

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