Does University Hospitals Sussex NHS Foundation Trust have any local treatment guidelines, pathways or protocols for the treatment of Idiopathic pulmonary fibrosis? Yes/No. If yes, please provide a copy.
As well as following BTS and NICE Guidelines, the Trust does have local pathways and protocols for treatment of patients with Idiopathic pulmonary fibrosis.
Following changes to the way patients are treated in the wake of the Covid pandemic and the recent change to NICE Guidelines, these local guidelines are currently under review pending a region wide meeting with the tertiary centre we refer patients to.
As such, active local guidelines are not available under the terms of the Freedom of Information Act at this time.
Should you wish to submit a further request in 6 months time we will gladly reconsider it and provide updated local guidelines if available.
