Holidaying with pulmonary fibrosis
When you’re living with pulmonary fibrosis (PF), going on holiday might need a bit more planning and preparation. We’ve written this guide to help you think about your needs so you can enjoy your holiday.

Being diagnosed and living with a lung condition can be challenging. Support groups offer the opportunity to meet others who understand what you are going through and are open to anyone affected by pulmonary fibrosis - patients, family, carers and friends.

We have a range of speakers on topics such as singing for lung health, keeping active, healthy eating, mental wellbeing, travel insurance and the latest news in research and treatments. Specialist staff are sometimes available for information and advice, and we also arrange informal social events from time to time. Why not come to one of our meetings and check us out?
