APF helps launch nine dedicated pulmonary fibrosis support groups so far in 2018

Action for Pulmonary Fibrosis is delighted to have been able to help set up eight new dedicated pulmonary support groups across the UK.

West Kent support group launch in April 2018

We know how valuable these support groups are to both patients and families, for advice, friendship and access to the latest healthcare advice on pulmonary fibrosis. It also allows APF to reach out to patients to find out how we can help them, and what they would like us to focus on.

We want to make sure that by 2020 every patient have easy access to a group, as this disease can be very isolating. To find a group near you, please use our map search function by clicking here.
