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?

When we meet

Face to face meetings are held every 2 months, usually on the second Friday of the month. Meetings start at 1.30pm and typically last 1.5 hours. Light refreshments ( tea/ coffee and cake) are available during the meeting.

Free parking is available directly adjacent to the venue in the garden centre car park. The venue is fully wheelchair accessible. The centre is a large, well ventilated space for social distancing.

Online meetings are held on alternative months to face to face meetings. We hold patient only meetings , run by patients, and family, friends and carers meeting run by carers.
