Respiratory medicine

Our team of respiratory and chest consultants diagnose and treat patients with chest-related conditions such as lung cancer, asthma, and shortness of breath.

Symptoms and conditions relating to your breathing and chest can be frustrating as they can have an impact on your sleep and comfort. If you are currently experiencing symptoms such as shortness of breath, coughing, chest pain or chronic asthma, or you are having trouble sleeping because of these symptoms, the first step is to book a consultation with one of our specialists.

We also diagnose and treat patients with occupation related health conditions such as occupational asthma, exposure to asbestos or other industrial dust exposure, asbestosis, malignant mesothelioma and pleural diseases.
