The choice of where you want to go after you leave the children's CF clinic is entirely up to you. Most people choose the centre closest to their home.
You are welcome to choose any adult centre.
Remember, paediatric and adult CF services are different. As an adult you are in charge of your care – all decisions about your treatment will be made with you (with help from your parents if that is what you want). Unlike children’s services, adult CF services do not provide any form of shared care. All clinic visits take place at the specialist CF centre. This may mean having to travel to the nearest specialist CF centre by train or car, so check out the parking availability, travel details, and travel times when you make your choice of adult CF centre.
We recommend that you have a look around before you decide.
