Respiratory medicine

What we do

A comprehensive respiratory service is provided for all inpatients and outpatients across both Chelsea and Westminster Hospital and West Middlesex University Hospital.  We treat the following conditions:

  • Asthma
  • Bronchiectasis
  • Chronic obstructive pulmonary disease
  • Interstitial lung diseases
  • Lung cancer
  • Lung nodules
  • Respiratory failure
  • Respiratory infections including TB
  • Sleep-disordered breathing
  • Stop smoking service

Outpatient services include: general respiratory clinics (including provision for military patients), joint multi-disciplinary lung cancer clinic with oncology, palliative care and thoracic surgery in-put, TB clinic, COPD clinic, sleep & ventilation clinic, Covid follow-up clinic and post (Long) Covid clinics. These are supported on-site by a lung function lab and Quit Smoking services.

The respiratory team looks after admitted patients on a designated ward located near acute assessment areas (AAU/AMU) with capability to provide inpatient non-invasive ventilation with close links to the Intensive Care Unit. Specialist Respiratory Nurses provide care in asthma, chronic obstructive pulmonary disease, lung cancer and tuberculosis.

Our Chelsea respiratory team consists of Dr Dilys Lai, Dr Orhan Orhan, Dr Gary Davies, Dr Suveer Singh, Professor Pallav Shah and Professor Michael Loebinger. At West Middlesex, the team consists of Dr Bobby Mann, Dr Rubab Ahmed, Dr Veronica Smith and Dr Helen Burgess. 

Understanding lung nodules

Our colleagues at RM Partners have developed information for patients and their families about being diagnosed with lung nodules. Find out what they are, how they are managed, and what further support is available for you.
