The Respiratory Department at St George’s University Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust is one of the largest of its kind in southwest London. Our mission is to deliver outstanding and accessible clinical services that are continually developed and refined in response to the needs of the people we serve.

Centralised to one site are a comprehensive service covering the breadth of Respiratory medicine, including airways disease, lung cancer, interstitial lung disease, lung function testing, bronchoscopic and pleural procedures, pulmonary hypertension evaluation and treatment, as well as a busy TB diagnosis and treatment programme.

An in-house sensitive blood test for detecting latent TB infection (based on the ELISpot platform) has been available since October 2007. A consultant-run joint connective tissue disease-interstitial lung disease clinic has been in place since August 2008.
