Cystic Fibrosis Clinic
We care for, treat and support adults with Cystic Fibrosis.
Who we care for
We provide care and treatment for people who are:
- in hospital
- referred to our specialist consulting clinics
We look after adults with Cystic Fibrosis from across Victoria, as we are a statewide service.
We can also provide treatment for you in your home, when you are well enough, using the Hospital in the Home service.
If you are transferring from another Cystic Fibrosis Care Service, your CF Specialist will need to send us a medical letter which details the care you have received at that Centre and your current health as well as copies of any previous scans and test results.
Commonly asked questions
Can I ask my doctor to complete supporting documentation about my health for places such as Centrelink or University?
Yes, we are happy to assist in completing these types of documents if they are relevant to your illness and current health status.
Please bring these documents, such as Special Consideration for University, Travel Insurance and Centrelink paperwork, with you to your appointment.
