Respiratory

Current status as of 13 April 2021

We are currently running outpatient clinics virtually, by telephone and video consultation, very limited face to face appointments are being offered if appropriate, at the discretion of the clinicians, for certain patient groups.

Outpatient lung cancer clinics and Interstitial Lung Disease (ILD) clinics have been ongoing through the pandemic mainly virtually however, face to face clinics are now being offered at a reduced rate due to social distancing regulations.

The sleep service is running telephone clinics for new and existing patients and diagnostics and treatment face to face appointments are available but at a reduced rate with safety precautions in place.

 

Future plans

There are plans for lung function testing and the sleep clinic’s diagnostic and treatment service to return to full functionality, as soon as social distancing rules allow however a limited service is running at present.
