Happy birthday to the Wolfson Cystic Fibrosis Centre, which opened its doors to patients a year ago today!
This £6.6m state-of-the-art facility was funded by NUH Trust and Nottingham Hospitals Charity, with a £700,000 donation coming from the Wolfson family, after whom the centre is named.
The centre has transformed the care of cystic fibrosis (CF) patients from Nottinghamshire and beyond, with specially designed facilities to cater to their needs. This includes a dedicated chef, as CF sufferers have to consume roughly twice the amount of calories than the average person, and individual gym pods with glass dividers so that patients can exercise together – another key aspect of CF treatment – without the risk of cross infection that is associated with the condition.
More than 175 adult patients have so far being treated at the facility, which is located at the City Hospital campus.
