Respiratory Medicine

One Ashford Hospital has a number of Respiratory Consultants who hold regular outpatient clinics at One Ashford Hospital.


Respiratory medicine focuses on the diagnosis, treatment and prevention of diseases and disorders affecting the respiratory system. This branch of medicine deals with a range of conditions including:

  • Allergies
  • Asthma
  • Breathlessness
  • Chest Pain
  • Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease (COPD)
  • Cough
  • Pneumonia
  • Lung cancer
  • Respiratory infections
  • Wheezing


Respiratory medicine encompasses a wide range of diagnostic techniques, such as lung function tests, imaging studies (such as X-rays or CT scans), bronchoscopy (visual examination of airways) and sleep studies, to identify the underlying cause of respiratory problems.

Once a diagnosis is established, respiratory specialists develop individualised treatment plans tailored to each patient's needs. Treatments may include medication therapy, inhalers, bronchodilators, antibiotics, or corticosteroids to manage symptoms and improve lung function. In severe cases or when conservative measures fail, interventions such as oxygen therapy, mechanical ventilation, or surgical procedures may be necessary.
