The UK National Aspergillosis Centre has been commissioned (2009) by the Department of Health to provide long term care for patients with chronic pulmonary aspergillosis. This condition is one of several caused by the airborne fungus Aspergillus.
Expertise in the clinical management of chronic pulmonary aspergillosis (CPA) and the sophisticated diagnostic testing and monitoring required to support high quality clinical care will also contribute to the care of patients with all forms of aspergillosis including allergic bronchopulmonary aspergillosis (ABPA).
The centre also actively participates in the care of patients with severe asthma with fungal sensitivity (SAFS).
