The Leeds Pulmonary Fibrosis Support Group

The group meets on the last Thursday of alternate months at Stanningley Rugby Club, Arthur Miller Stadium, Coal Hill Drive, Leeds LS13 1PA.

This group was formed in November 2015 and our aim is to provide a welcoming supportive and informative environment for those affected by pulmonary fibrosis in Leeds and the surrounding area.

Our membership numbers over 60, consisting of patients and their carers. We try to arrange a speaker at each meeting and the occasional social activity but there is plenty of time for refreshments and a chat with those around you.
