The UK Cystic Fibrosis Conference 

Our flagship UK Cystic Fibrosis Conference (UKCFC) is the largest event of its kind in the UK, and brings together researchers, clinicians, and friends and family of people with cystic fibrosis, to explore all aspects of clinical care and research in cystic fibrosis.

This year's conference will take place on 26 and 27 September at the Kia Oval in Kennington, London. Please check back here in the coming weeks for further information.

Information evenings

We hold information evenings throughout the year to allow families and friends of people with CF to find out more about the work of the Trust. Take a look at the information evenings coming up in your area.
