To support the health of people with cystic fibrosis, NHS England is undertaking a review of cystic fibrosis care including a review of service provision, management, and financing over the past two years. The review has already distributed recommendations for optimal monitoring of patients at home.

To support standards of cystic fibrosis care, NHS England is also undertaking a baseline assessment of cystic fibrosis centres to understand current standards, care provision, and any gaps. This data will inform the 2023/24 work programme. To support cystic fibrosis patients to live longer and healthier lives, people with cystic fibrosis in England have also benefited from one of the fastest rollouts of the drug Kaftrio in the world.
