This article explores the processes used in a participatory arts and health project in the North West of England, UK. The client group were young people (aged 18 and under) who have Cystic Fibrosis (CF) and the project outcome was to create a pack that would help young people with CF make the transition from paediatric care to adult care at the Manchester Adult Cystic Fibrosis Centre (MACFC) at Wythenshawe Hospital. Part evaluation and part reflection, the article discusses the response to the project from the participants (young people with CF aged 13-18), healthcare professionals with a specialism in clinical CF care and the creative team who led the project. It makes recommendations about ways of creatively working with this specific client group and ways of making the creative process the main outcome in such a project.
