If you are prescribed the anti-fibrotic drug nintedanib, you may have arrangements in place for your prescription to be delivered to your home.

Some of our APF community have said they are experiencing issues with the current courier service. If you’re finding you’re having problems with your nintedanib delivery, it is essential that you contact the health professionals who are treating you and who prescribe your nintedanib, who can look into this on your behalf.

APF are also interested in mapping where in the country this is happening. If you would like to share issues with your nintedanib delivery with us, please email

Don’t forget you can also get help and advice about anything to do with pulmonary fibrosis by contacting our support line.
