Invitation to attend a free health seminar on Adult Cystic Fibrosis at Blackpool Victoria Hospital

MEMBERS of the public are invited to attend a free presentation on Adult Cystic Fibrosis at the latest health seminar for members of Blackpool Teaching Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust.

Dr Tarek Saba, Consultant Chest Physician, will host a seminar on Tuesday, June 19, 2018 at 3pm in the Cardiac Lecture Theatre, Cardiac Centre, Blackpool Victoria Hospital.

To tie in with National Cystic Fibrosis Week, Dr Saba and the team will be explaining what Cystic Fibrosis is, what treatments are available, and telling us about the new Blackpool Adult Cystic Fibrosis Service that was launched last year.

Cystic Fibrosis is one of the most common inherited conditions in the Western world. It affects many parts of the body, including the lungs, liver and bowels. There have been tremendous advances in treatment in recent years and quality of life and life expectancy have improved a great deal.

Dr Saba said “It’s really exciting that we now have an Adult Cystic Fibrosis Service in Blackpool so that patients and their families can get their care closer to home.”
