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.
