The clinic is located on the 6th floor of the Donnelly Wing in the hospital.
CF clinics happen on Tuesdays, Wednesday, and Fridays with more than 40 outpatients seen in these 3 clinics each week. The clinic you’ll attend depends on a variety of factors, outlined in this section.
The outpatient clinics run throughout the year with the exception of two weeks over the December holiday period. The clinic that you attend will depend on several factors, including the type of bacteria you grow or have grown in your sputum as well as the type of clinic that you need to attend (for example, regular clinic visit vs. patients actively on home intravenous therapy vs. patients who need to be seen by the CF Gastroenterologist). Tuesday clinics typically run all day and are reserved for patients who have never grown Burkholderia species bacteria in their sputum. Wednesday clinic is scheduled in the morning and is reserved for patients receiving home intravenous antibiotic treatment for a chest infection. Friday morning clinic is typically for people who have grown Burkholderia species bacteria in their sputum. The Friday clinic is further divided to accommodate people growing different strains of Burkholderia species. Friday afternoon CF Gastroenterology clinics occur monthly for those people that have bowel problems.
The booking office will let you know which day you are expected to attend based on infection control restrictions.
If you are unsure as to which clinic you should attend please ask your CF doctor or nurse.
