BLF Leading the Fight Against IPF

IPF Week - 23-29 September
BLF Leading the Fight Against IPF

Do you or someone you know have IPF (idiopathic pulmonary fibrosis)? You may like to add a date to your diary for a meeting on IPF being organised by the BLF North Region in Leeds on 26 September, 12.30-4.30pm, during World IPF Week. This meeting will be chaired by North Regional Committee Chairman, Professor David Fishwick and the programme will include experts in IPF, information on research and support available through the BLF.

The day is aimed at people who have, or care for someone with, IPF and there will also be a limited number of places available for healthcare professionals wanting to learn more about the disease.

If you would like to receive further information about the event, please email me on bev.wears@blf.org.uk.

  • Hi Threeputt. Sorry you missed this one. We've been holding a series of IPF Meet the Experts events and as a result have started a support group in Newcastle. Not sure where you live but if you'd like more info, please email me on north@blf.org.uk With best wishes.

  • Hallo Bevwears,

    Looks like I should pay more attention to when messages are posted. I live in Staffordshire so depending on where meetings are I may be able to make. If you could let me know when and where, I would be grateful

  • Meetings are held in Gosforth, Newcastle upon Tyne so maybe not convenient for you. The BLF Helpline has all the details. They will also have details of any other IPF support groups nearer to you . . . I think there's one in the Midlands. Helpline can be contacted on enquiries@blf.org.uk or 03000 030 555. with best wishes, Bev

  • Thanks for that I will contact them and get info.

    Regards
