Would you be interested in joining the 3CF PPI Panel?
We are looking to put together a panel of People with CF (PwCF) and/or family members of PwCF who attend our unit (can be siblings, children, parents, and partners), who will support the design and implementation of future research studies and/or clinical care services in a manner that is representative of all PwCF. You do not have to have any specialist medical or research knowledge to apply. If you want to find out more, click here.
