We care for, treat and support adults with Cystic Fibrosis.
Clinical service overview
Cystic Fibrosis is a genetic disorder with life-limiting, multi-system comorbidities. It is best managed in conjunction with a well-resourced, multi-disciplinary team, particularly in the current era of gene-potentiating therapies.
Referrals for treatment or for assessment of adults with any clinical features of CF are invited.

We accept GP and specialist referrals to this service.
All referrals are triaged by the service according to clinical urgency. Patients requiring immediate assessment should be sent to the Emergency & Trauma Centre.
To refer your patient, complete and fax a referral to us. For urgent referrals, also contact the service Registrar to discuss the case.
To ensure appropriate and timely triage, include all demographic and clinical details as well as relevant investigation results.
If you are concerned about any delay of the appointment or if there is any deterioration in your patient’s condition, contact the service Registrar on call on (03) 9076 2000.
