The CF service is led by Rebecca Thomas, supported by Tracey Daniels (York) and Tanya Cavany (Hull) in the roles of Non-medical Clinical Leads. The specialist physiotherapists are Kath France, Katy Lee, and Nicola Robson (currently on maternity leave) at York and Kirsteen Hasney at Hull, and the clinical nurse specialists are Laura Wood and Julie Ackerley (York); Melanie Robinson and Debbie Ingram (Hull). Our CF dietitians are Kate Powell (York) and Joanna Donaldson-Smith (Hull). The clinical psychologist for CF is Emily Young (York) and Rochelle Crawford (Hull). The sister for ward 34 (York) is Rebecca Howells. We also have a team of other clinicians at York and Hull who we work closely with to deal with non-respiratory problems that can happen in people with CF.
Our aim is to provide a specialised and personalised multidisciplinary package of care for adults in York, Hull, Scarborough and surrounding areas.
Our website is designed to give you up-to-date information about Cystic Fibrosis and the York Hull Adult Cystic Fibrosis service. We also aim to keep you posted about new developments and changes that we're making to the services available in the York, Hull and Scarborough areas.
Here are some websites which we think may be useful with giving more information on Cystic Fibrosis
We are always amazed and extremely grateful when people go out of their way to raise money for cystic fibrosis services. Some people are motivated by a family member or friend living with CF, and some people have heard about the disease in the press and offer to help.
