Patient & Carer Meetings

National Aspergillosis Centre holds a patients meeting on the first Friday of each month from 1pm (light lunch) with talks from 1.30pm-3.30pm at the Altounyan Suite in the North West Lung Centre at University Hospital of South Manchester (UHSM), Wythenshawe Hospital, Manchester.

Intended for all patients suffering from aspergillosis (and their carers) this is an open meeting which has become a regular feature and enables all patients (not just those attending the National Aspergillosis Centre) to see a little of what we do here at the centre, some of the research we are part of (and which many patients at the centre participate in) and to socialise with other patients & carers as well as various members of the team at the centre.

It will also provide an opportunity to coordinate more efforts to improve how we help our patients & carers and anyone else who has aspergillosis.

Everyone is welcome. Tea, coffee & light lunch provided.


Approach NW Lung Centre reception as normal but instead of going through the doors on the left for the waiting room, go through the doors to the right of reception. Proceed down the corridor past Lung Function on your right. Go straight through 2 sets of double doors and the door in front of you it to the Altounyan Suite.

The reception area is a small atrium where we will offer a light lunch plus tea & coffee at 1pm.
