These guidelines are based on published evidence as well as the extensive clinical experience of our Paediatric CF Team. This is how we do things, but it does not mean that other regimens are necessarily wrong just because they are different. However patients who come to the Royal Brompton Hospital, either for full or shared care, will be looked after using these guidelines.
These guidelines have been endorsed by the Medicines Management Board of Royal Brompton & Harefield NHS Foundation Trust in December 2013.

Please note, the next revision will be published in 2017 so this edition should not be used after that date. Please destroy all 2011 editions.
