Cystic Fibrosis Trust statement in response to PM Liz Truss speech at Conservative Party Conference

David Ramsden, Chief Executive of Cystic Fibrosis Trust said: "It is disappointing that the Prime Minister did not take the opportunity today to offer some reassurance to people with cystic fibrosis who are facing a cost-of-living crisis right now. 1 in 3 people with the condition are missing hospital appointments due to cost and 1 in 3 are running out of food before they have money to buy more. A below inflation increase to benefits this winter would put the health of many people with cystic fibrosis at risk. It is vital that they receive a real term increase in this essential support.”
