I am a physio at the Royal Brompton Hospital within the Cystic Fibrosis Centre. People with Cf have countless numbers of appointments and often these can take up a whole day taking into account travelling time etc. This can be exhausting and impact on their work and social lives. I have seen first hand the exciting developments that are taking place with regards to giving patients the ability to monitor their health at home and share it with us. This will facilitate timely management of exacerbations and also reduce the number of hospital visits patients have to make if they are keeping well! Obviously this is a cause very close to my heart and I would like to make a contribution to help with making this project a real success and putting our patients back in the driving seat!
