Action for Pulmonary Fibrosis were delighted to attend and support the ILD INN annual conference 2017 held on the 8th-9th October at the Birmingham Conference and Events Centre.

This was a two day event bringing educational sessions, interactive workshops and networking opportunities to the ILD health professional community. Action for Pulmonary Fibrosis were pleased to be able to sponsor 10 places for nurses to attend the event.

It was fantastic to see such a buzzing conference and meet lots of health professional at our stand. We were able to catch up with some of the nurses already running patient support groups around the country and meet health professional with an interest in setting up new groups. Staff supported by the charity to attend the conference joined us at our stand to have a group photo and nurses were commenting on how much they were enjoying the sessions – A very productive and enjoyable day.
