Respiratory

The respiratory department has well established services in lung cancer diagnostics, tuberculosis, sleep and non-invasive ventilation, interstitial lung disease, bronchiectasis, asthma, COPD and other aspects of general respiratory medicine.

We have developed an endobronchial ultrasound, thoracoscopy (a minimally invasive surgical procedure) and pleural catheter service, and are a recognised centre for multi-drug resistant tuberculosis. We work closely with allied specialties and tertiary referrals to provide specialist services to include home antibiotic services for bronchiectasis, anti Immunoglobin E (Anti-IgE) injections for asthma, disease modifying therapies for sarcoidosis and other interstitial lung disease, as well as advanced respiratory physiology testing.

A daily “inreach” is provided to our medical assessment units allowing prompt respiratory care for patients.

Great grandad who underwent a double lung transplant will throw a fundraising dinner to say thank you for his care

A great grandad who underwent a double lung transplant will throw a fundraising dinner to say thank you for his care.

Michael Willis (second from right) and his wife Patricia with our respiratory team.

Michael Willis, aged 60, who suffers from the rare lung condition sarcoidosis, was given just six months to live – unless he had the major operation.
He was cared for by consultant respiratory physician Dr Arvind Rajaskaran at City Hospital, Birmingham, who was determined to save his patient.  He worked with the Royal Papworth Hospital to find a donor and Michael had surgery in June last year at the Cambridge-based hospital.
