Keeping well this winter
During the colder months, there might be a higher risk of catching coughs and colds when meeting face-to-face. If you're concerned about this, please contact the group organiser for information about how group members are keeping in touch, and how the group manages infection risk.

Read more about managing pulmonary fibrosis in cold weather.

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 are a new and enthusiastic group with plans to explore a range of themes on topics such as emotional support, benefits / finances, keeping active, and the latest news in research and treatments.  We also aim to invite guest speakers including from clinical teams at the Royal Infirmary of Edinburgh and Western General Hospital. If you live in the Edinburgh or Lothian area, why not come to one of our meetings and check us out?
