We care for patients with chest diseases, lung and breathing problems.
We treat inpatients and outpatients with respiratory difficulties in our hospitals and in community settings across Buckinghamshire.
How to access our service
You’ll need a referral from your GP or from one of our consultants. We’ll assess you and you may need chest x-rays, blood tests, a biopsy, bronchoscopy (a test to look down your windpipe into your lungs) or phlegm analysis to diagnose your condition and decide the best course of treatment.
Who we see
We see patients with a range of conditions including:
- chest and lung cancers
- fluid on the lungs
- sleep disorders (apnoea and obstructive sleep)
- cystic fibrosis
- chronic coughs that won’t heal on their own
- chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD)
- collapsed lung (pneumothorax)
- pulmonary embolism and pulmonary hypertension
How we treat you
Depending on your condition, you may need inhalers, exercise therapy, oxygen therapy or surgery.
Smoking can cause a number of respiratory illnesses. By giving up smoking, you’ll reduce your risk of further disease.
