Health Professionals Dr Patrick McKiernan

CLDF is keen to support your work caring for children and young people with liver disease and their families.
We liaise with both paediatric and adult units involved in the provision of adolescent and transitional services.  If you would like to talk to us about how CLDF can be involved in your unit, send us an email.
We publish a regular e-newsletter for professionals.  Subscribe to Pro-News here.

Family services

CLDF services enable families and young people to share and meet with others and we also provide support projects for the extended family and friends. Find out more about our family services.

Ward presentations

Ward staff develop strong relationships with families and can support their families more fully by telling them about what CLDF has to offer.  CLDF has a short presentation for ward staff delivered by the families and young people's teams.  Talk to someone about a presentation at your unit.
“Since learning more about CLDF we have ensured families are aware of the charity, and now feel more equipped to point families and young people in its direction. I feel I am also providing a real service to the patients and families in my care,” says a member of staff from the Rays of Sunshine Ward at King’s College Hospital, London.
