Welcome to W.I.L.D.

A group set up to provide information, support and a voice to sufferers with all forms of interstitial lung disease (ILD) or pulmonary fibrosis and their carers who live in the Wessex region.

Most of our patients are cared for at Southampton University Hospital, Queen Alexandra Hospital, Portsmouth, Royal Bournemouth and Poole Hospitals, Royal Hampshire Hospitals (Winchester and Basingstoke), Dorset County, Salisbury District and Lymington New Forest Hospitals but we welcome anyone looking for support and advice on coping with these illnesses.
