If your child has been invited for a face-to-face appointment or procedure, it’s important you still come unless you hear otherwise.
To help keep everyone safe, only one parent or carer can attend. No other family or friends can visit.

Your child's appointment with the respiratory service

This page explains what you and your child can expect at your respiratory appointment. 

How do I get an appointment?

You must have a referral from either your GP, a hospital doctor at Evelina London Children’s Hospital, a specialist from another hospital or through the accident and emergency department

Cancelling or changing your appointment

If you need to change or cancel your child’s appointment for any reason, please contact the appointments office on 020 7188 4000 or email paediatricappointment@gstt.nhs.uk.

Please tell us as soon as possible so we can offer the appointment to another patient. 

Before your appointment

Please bring along any recent letters from doctors or therapists involved in your child’s care. It is also helpful to bring along your child’s red book (personal child health record) and a list of any medication that your child is taking.  

During your appointment

You and your child will see a respiratory doctor. This will be either a consultant or a registrar with at least five years training in children’s medicine.

Appointments normally last around 30 minutes, although this may vary depending on your child’s condition.

As we are a teaching hospital, students and visitors may be observing the team. We will always ask your permission for them to observe your appointment.  

After your appointment

At the end of the appointment, your child will either be given a further appointment, discharged back to your referring doctor or referred for further tests or treatment.

We will write to the referring doctor to explain what happened at the appointment and what will happen next. We will send a copy of this letter to you, your GP and any other healthcare professionals involved in your child’s care. 

The letter will have a contact number if you have any questions.
