Background and Training

Stuart Elborn trained in Belfast and helped developed Cystic Fibrosis Centres for adult in Nottingham and Cardiff.  On return to Belfast in 1995 started a new Adult Cystic Fibrosis Centre providing care for all adults with cystic fibrosis in Northern Ireland.

The Belfast Centre also has an active research programme in basic science of inflammation and infection and clinical research in airways clearance, self-management programmes and undertakes a range of clinical trials examining new treatments for cystic fibrosis.

I also run a non-cystic fibrosis bronchiectasis service providing regional care for patients with bronchiectasis, particularly those with complex disease.
