We are pleased to announce the launch of the “Hywel Dda Pulmonary Fibrosis Support Group”. Membership is open to all people living with pulmonary fibrosis (patients and carers) in Carmarthenshire, Ceredigion and Pembrokeshire.

The launch meeting took place on 18th April 2018 at Prince Phillip Hospital, Llannelli.

The programme included talks by:

  • Dr Mark Andrews, Consultant Respiratory Physician on “Pulmonary Fibrosis- causes, treatments and care”

The meeting was a huge success and there was lots of time for Questions and Answers with the clinical specialists and time for attendees to chat amongst themselves over a cup of tea/coffee and a cake.
