The Welsh Health Specialised Services Committee (WHSSC) is responsible for commissioning cystic fibrosis (CF) care in Wales, with Cardiff and Vale University Health Board providing a service for patients in mid and south Wales. Information from WHSSC for the service provided by Cardiff and Vale University Health Board shows:

  • 267 adult patients had an annual assessment in 2021, of those, 43% had a psychology review at the same time and 95% also had a social work review. There is no data on the number of patients who declined psychological support.
  • For children there was no psychologist service for 11 months, owing to the time required to advertise and appoint, so only 9% (16) of all paediatric cystic fibrosis patients had a psychology review at annual assessment in 2021.

Cystic fibrosis patients in north Wales access services in England. Equivalent data is not available for patients treated in English centres.
