Show services list


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.


We offer a full range of diagnostic tests including

Endobronchial Ultrasound (EBUS)


Sleep studies and acute/domicillary NIV

Advanced respiratory physiology including cardiopulmonary exercise and mannitol challenge

We offer services in the full range of respiratory disorders including chronic cough, COPD, asthma (including biologic therapy), bronchiectasis including patients on long term nebulised antibiotics, sleep apnoea and home non-invasive ventilation, tuberculosis, non-tuberculous mycobacteria and multi-drug resistant tuberculosis, sarcoid and other interstitial lung diseases and investigation of suspected lung cancer.
