We are a forward-thinking, innovative team caring for patients with a variety of Respiratory conditions. Read on to find out why a move to Respiratory could be the best thing you do…

Why join us in Respiratory Medicine?

Join a Group of Pioneers

By investing in technology, we no longer do manual blood pressure checks in Respiratory – we are revolutionising patient treatment.

Enjoy a Creative Working Environment

We take an imaginative approach to our nursing teams, with Nurse Registrars and Nurse Consultants running their own clinics.

Delivering (and Receiving) the Gold Standard

When you join our team, you join our quest to deliver the gold standard in patient care. In return, we will fully support you with training and development.

A Wide Variety of Specialties to Choose from.

Our team covers a huge number of patient conditions, from Asthma to Tuberculosis, Lung Cancer to Cystic Fibrosis – and you can become a specialist in your chosen field.

About Our Unit

We have some exciting developments taking place on our dedicated Respiratory Ward, Hethel Ward, as we continue to grow our Acute Respiratory Service. We are in the process of implementing two 6 bedded ARC bays – one male, and one female – to care for up to 12 patients on non-invasive ventilation (NIV). We are also developing the offer of opti-flow and tracheostomy care.

We cover a broad remit of patient conditions, and so the department is broken down into sub-specialties, with dedicated staff caring for patients with conditions including:

  • Asthma
  • Bronchiectasis
  • Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease
  • Cystic Fibrosis
  • Domiciliary Oxygen Therapy
  • Interstitial Lung Disease (pulmonary fibrosis)
  • Lung Cancer
  • Non-Invasive Ventilation (NIV)
  • Pulmonary Rehabilitation
  • Sleep Medicine, Domiciliary CPAP
  • Tuberculosis
