Respiratory medicine

What we do

Our inpatient and outpatient services help patients with respiratory diseases.

Inpatient service

We have a specialist respiratory ward, Mary Ward, with 25 beds, one negative pressure room, two single and two double side rooms. There are six non-invasive ventilation (NIV) machines for the care of patients with severe respiratory failure.

We have links with the community Long term conditions team, with early supported discharge for appropriate patients.

Outpatient service

Our respiratory nurse specialists run a service for patients with chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) and other patients with severe respiratory disease. We have a pulmonary rehabilitation programme that runs both at the hospital and at several centres in the community.

The lung function laboratory provides a wide range of tests including basic lung function, body plethysmography, home polysomnography / oximetry, bronchoprovocation, hypoxic challenge and cardio-pulmonary exercise testing.

There are separate clinics for patients with lung cancer and for patients with tuberculosis. We have an Endoscopy Unit with weekly diagnostic bronchoscopy sessions.

Contact and location

Outpatient clinics are run in the Outpatient Department at Warwick Hospital.
