Respiratory medicine

The diagnosis and treatment of conditions of the airway and lungs, including asthma, pneumonia, lung cancer and fibrotic lung disease.


Respiratory medicine covers a wide variety of conditions of the airway and lungs, their linings and blood vessels, and the muscles and nerves needed for breathing.

Our respiratory specialists treat a range of conditions, including asthma, allergy, septicaemia and pneumonia.

We have comprehensive and sophisticated facilities for the diagnosis and treatment of all types of lung disease.

Our respiratory specialists work as part of multidisciplinary teams with other specialties within the hospital, from paediatrics to oncology.

Consultations and diagnostics can all be carried out in the same place – cutting down the wait time and progressing you quickly through to specialist treatment.

Our network of nutritionists, physiotherapists and highly trained nursing staff ensures that you get the best all-round care for respiratory conditions.
