Respiratory Diagnostics

respiratory medicine

Our department works closely with other disciplines within LHCH including Cardiac Diagnostics, Cystic Fibrosis and the Rapid Access Service. We actively encourage involvement with associations such as the British Lung Foundation and Breathe Easy (a self-help group for people suffering from all types of lung disease). You may be referred to us by either a Hospital consultant or your own GP. Depending on the reason for your referral, you may have just one test or a series of tests.
