Foster signs EDM 2033: Future of Cystic Fibrosis with the NHS

August 17, 2023 by admin in News

Don Foster has signed EDM 2033 that states:

That this House recognises that effective care and treatment of cystic fibrosis (CF) can only be carried out by multi-disciplinary teams, including specialist nurses, physiotherapists and dieticians; notes that patient care is being compromised because posts in these vital disciplines are being disestablished, downgraded, left vacant or used to backfill general vacancies; is concerned that these cuts by stealth are a false economy as they are likely to cost the NHS more in in-patient and acute care; and calls on the Secretary of State for Health to ensure that NHS trusts fulfil their obligations to those with CF as set out in the Standards of Care.
