Reflections on a year of shielding and lockdowns

As we mark a year since the first shielding advice was announced, Becky Kilgariff, our Head of Information, Support and Programmes, takes a moment to reflect on how the pandemic has affected people with cystic fibrosis (CF). Thanks to your incredible support, the Trust has provided information and help to the CF community throughout this difficult year. As we approach the end of another period of shielding, we recognise there may be mixed emotions including some anxiety and uncertainty so Becky also gives an update on our plans to ensure that you continue to have the support you need.
