Watch this space! (We are about to recruit 1 new Clinical Nurse Specialist)




We are usually your first point of contact at the All Wales Adult Cystic Fibrosis Centre. There are 7 clinical nurse specialists (CNS), who have either worked on wards caring for patients with CF or as specialist nurses for a number of years, and who have previous experience from a variety of nursing backgrounds. We work as part of the multidisciplinary team. You may see a different nurse each time you come to clinic. Although we are inter-changeable, we each have other specific nursing roles.


What We Do

The specialist nursing team provide advocacy and psychosocial support when needed, especially at important times such as transition, discussions concerning fertility, family planning, genetic counselling, during pregnancy, and discussions around transplant.

We aim to act as a link between you and primary care/community services and hospital. We liaise with the other members of the team and make referrals to them on your behalf.


IV Treatments - The specialist nurse team also provide home care support particularly for home intravenous (IV) antibiotic therapy. We run an individual competency-based home IV teaching program and initiate home IV’s, providing written information, as well as pumps and disposable supplies for use during treatment, some home IV treatments are available through a homecare company who will deliver the drugs ready made up and ready to infuse in special devices.

We access port-a-caths and pas-ports for routine flushes and at the start if IV therapy, insert long-lines, take blood to monitor drug levels and review patients throughout the course of their treatment. If you need blood tests, these can be done in out-patients, but we can also arrange a home visit to do this providing we have enough staff on duty, or request them to be done at your GP practice.. We will contact you if we need to adjust the dosage of medication following venepuncture.


Annual Reviews - We co-ordinate and manage annual reviews ensuring that you are seen by all members of the multidisciplinary team. We also arrange tests and investigations that are due around this time.


Support & Training - The specialist nurses can provide advice, training, education and support to you, members of hospital staff and other professionals involved in CF care. We have attended European and National meetings to keep updated on recent research and developments within cystic fibrosis and often liaise with specialist nurses from other centres cross the UK.


Patient safety - Patient safety and well-being are our prime concern and we adhere to very strict infection control policies. The specialist nurses help co-ordinate the various clinics with regard to different infections, and consultant availability. We are always available during working hours for any concerns that may arise.
