Mid Essex Pulmonary Fibrosis Support Group

Information icon

Special Notice: coronavirus
Due to the coronavirus situation, and following government advice, support groups are not currently meeting face-to-face until further notice.

In some areas virtual meetings are taking place; please contact the group organiser for information about alternative ways group members are keeping in touch.

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…

When we meet

In normal times, we meet on the third Thursday of every month, 11 a.m.- 1p.m at the Springfield Parish Centre.

But during lock-down, we have been meeting virtually on-line via Zoom. We air our problems and we also have a jolly good laugh!

The ZOOM meetings are for members (sufferers and carers) - if you would like to join our Group, please ring Lucy Pigram on 07885 986 713 or email Chelmsfordpf@outlook.com

Every PF sufferer and their carer or family member is welcome
