About Northern Trust Pulmonary Fibrosis Support Group
CARING-SHARING-SUPPORTING Patients and Carers in Northern Ireland;
Pulmonary Fibrosis is a terminal condition and Idiopathic Pulmonary Fibrosis has no known cause or cure. We at The Northern Trust Pulmonary Fibrosis Support Group (NTPFSG) are here to provide support to sufferers of pulmonary fibrosis and their families from all across Northern Ireland; working to improve their quality of life. We provide practical support with day to day living. We help raise awareness and support research into improved outcomes and greater understanding of pulmonary fibrosis. We also provide a supportive place to come together to chat and socialise with a community that understands what it is like to live with pulmonary fibrosis.
We have Ambassadors all across Northern Ireland who link with and assist their local pulmonary fibrosis community.
We are a not for profit charity who have appointed Directors who give up their time freely and work collectively for the betterment of all pulmonary sufferers in Northern Ireland.
Our President is Dr Eoin Murtagh (Respiratory Consultant) Antrim Area Hospital) and our Patron is Mrs Julie Hesmondhalgh
The NTPFSG is involved with our politicians on the all party working group for lung health in Northern Ireland. We have contact with our Respiratory medical teams across the Health and Social Care Trusts to ensure that they are aware of the services we provide to sufferers and their families.
