Paediatric respiratory

What we do

We provide a comprehensive service for infants and children with complex respiratory (breathing) problems.

We hold a weekly referral clinic and have a fully equipped paediatric lung function laboratory, a bronchoscopy (investigation) suite and a full range of diagnostic facilities.

We work closely with the Regional Cystic Fibrosis and Adolescent Centre, which cares for more than 240 children with cystic fibrosis. We hold five clinics each month at King’s and outreach CF clinics at 10 district general hospitals.
