“There are no absolutes. There’s a big spectrum in PCD” – Amanda Harris talks to Rarely Heard
“I’m always saying to kids ‘you’re not PCD…you’re Silvia, who happens to have PCD. So, what do you enjoy? You like swimming? Do swimming then! You like running? Go running then! […] Doing physio is to enable you to do the stuff that you want to do.”
Join Clinical Nurse Specialist, Amanda Harris, as she talks to Phillipa from Rarely Heard about her career working in PCD and CF.
In this insightful podcast, she talks about the power of partnerships in PCD, and how she supports children and young people to live their best lives with this disease.
