A number of transport strikes are due to take place in November and December. If you or your child has an appointment at one of our hospitals or community centres, please plan ahead and do all you can to attend. If you need to cancel your appointment, please contact your clinical team.

Nurses' strike action will take place on 15 and 20 December. Our emergency and time critical services will be open. We'll let you know if your appointment is affected.

Respiratory service

For children affected by breathing difficulties

Our respiratory service cares for children affected by breathing difficulties such as asthma and lung infections.

We see children from south London and south east England.

Our team carries out a range of tests and investigations to diagnose respiratory (breathing) conditions. We work with our patients to manage acute (short term) and chronic (long-term) conditions.

As many of our patients have long-term conditions, we work closely with the adult respiratory service, the Lane Fox Respiratory Unit, to ensure a smooth transition from children’s to adult services. 

Since 2012, we have provided a children’s home ventilation service and our specialist respiratory nurse supports families in the local community. We also work closely with our colleagues at King’s College Hospital.
