About the Respiratory Unit
The department includes a dedicated Sleep Clinic, which assesses and treats patients with disturbed sleep patterns, sleep disordered breathing and specifically obstructive sleep apnoea.
Our multi-disciplinary medical team includes Consultant Physicians in Sleep, Allergy and Thoracic Medicine, Specialist Clinical Physiologists and has strong links with a Specialist Respiratory Physiotherapist and Dietician.
It is universally recognised that beyond diagnosis, patients with chronic lung disorders, such as Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease, Pulmonary Fibrosis and Sarcoidosis should have regular respiratory testing as a standard part of their monitoring.
Assessments can be done for occupational exposures to identify the best treatment plan. We also offer a comprehensive Skin Allergy Testing service to identify substances responsible for a variety of Allergic conditions. Please see our separate Allergy Unit leaflet for full details.
With our unparalleled flexibility and expertise we offer our patients the ultimate standard of care and treatment.
