Full respiratory assessment, treatment and testing.

We are here to assist you and your regular GP during the COVID pandemic.
Your regular GP may refer you to the Respiratory Clinic for a variety of reasons. For example they may be trying to reduce the risk of infection to other patients, they may not have sufficient PPE to safely conduct an examination or the individual GP may be more vulnerable to a significant COVID-19 infection. Whatever the reason, we are here to help.
With your consent, a letter will be sent to your usual GP outlining your assessment and management.
Test results which are negative will be communicated to you via text. In the case there is a positive result such as influenza, COVID-19, whooping cough or other respiratory viruses, you will be called by one of the Respiratory Clinic GPs. All results will be copied into your usual GP.
