Cystic Fibrosis Psychologists
There are two Clinical Psychologists in the service and they see anyone who is under the care of the Cystic Fibrosis Team. They see patients for a variety of reasons related to their experience of CF. You can ask to meet with a psychologist at any time and any member of the MDT can also refer you as well. However, if a team member has referred you and you decide that you do not want to meet with a psychologist, that is your right and it will not affect your medical treatment or a re-referral in the future. They offer an assessment appointment for any new referral in order to establish the most appropriate treatment. It may be that some of your difficulties are not related to your experience of CF, and if so, we can help you access another source of support for these.
