Last November we launched our brand new CF Insight Survey to help build a picture of what cystic fibrosis looks like in 2016. We had an incredible response, with more than 860 people with CF, their families, partners and friends taking part in the survey, answering questions on things like time spent on outpatient appointments, the financial burden of CF and their experiences of clinical trials.

People with a wide range of experiences of CF helped to write the questions for the survey, and by holding the survey annually we are hoping to build a picture of how life with CF is changing as the years go by.
We are looking for people to take part in one of two focus groups that will help to form the questions for the next CF Insight Survey. Focus group meetings will take place on 9 or 10 August from 7–9pm.
We want to hear from you if you are:
- A person with cystic fibrosis,
- A parent of someone with cystic fibrosis, or
- A partner of someone with cystic fibrosis.
Email firstname.lastname@example.org to express your interest in joining our focus group or find out more about taking part.
If it is not possible for you to attend either focus group meeting but you would still like to contribute your views, please get in touch so that we can share some questions with you after the meetings via email.
As a member of our focus group, you will be asked to participate in group discussions over Skype to explore what questions you would like to see featured in the next CF Insight Survey, and what the Trust’s approach to improving CF care and services might look like.
David Ramsden, Chief Executive of the Trust, and Keith Brownlee, Director of Impact, will also be participating in these focus groups.
UK CF Registry
The UK Cystic Fibrosis Registry has provided a vital insight into the treatment of cystic fibrosis. Partnering the information gathered in the Registry Annual Reports with the analysis the Trust will produce from the results of the CF Insight Survey will provide further understanding of life with CF on a yearly basis. Contributions to the survey will help direct the work of the Trust in the future.
