Respiratory service referrals

Who can refer

We accept referrals for any children under 16 with chronic (long term) or acute (short term) respiratory conditions from GPs and from hospital consultants. We do not see patients with tuberculosis or cystic fibrosis.

We work closely with the Evelina London sleep service.

How to refer
