The Respiratory Centre at Portsmouth is one of the largest units in the country. The patient-base is 1% of the UK population, providing an exceptional range of clinical experience.

There is a well-established multi-disciplinary ethos, including a team of specialist respiratory nurses, a superintendent physiotherapist and team, a specialist lung-function and sleep team and a closely-integrated secretarial and clerical staff.

The department has a strong record of delivery in research and innovation, with a wide interest in educational activities, headed by a Chair in Respiratory Medicine; he is also Respiratory Lead for the Wessex Academic Health Science Network, facilitating departmental participation in regional Respiratory Quality Improvement programmes. The department has close links with the Universities of Portsmouth and Southampton.

The Respiratory Centre includes purpose-built respiratory outpatient facilities, a respiratory day-case ward and bronchoscopy suite, lung function laboratories, administrative and secretarial support, with office-space for the entire team. Chest imaging facilities are immediately adjacent.

Respiratory in-patients in Portsmouth
All respiratory consultants participate in the acute GIM take and on call at QAH (approx. 1:26). There is a newly-built 10-bedded state-of-the-art Respiratory High Care Unit run by the respiratory physicians, adjacent to dedicated respiratory wards with 66 further beds.

Portsmouth Sleep Service

Since our Sleep service was established 10 years ago, it has undergone rapid development and we see in excess of 1200 new cases per year, including referrals for a wide range of non-respiratory sleep disorders. We have an excellent multi-disciplinary team of nurses and physiologists who work closely with the rest of the Respiratory Department. Our sleep clinics are predominantly Nurse / Physiologist led, with access to a Consultant Sleep clinic for complex cases.
We have monthly sleep meetings that alternate between management of the service and departmental education.
We provide overnight polysomnography, multiple sleep latency tests and maintenance-of-wakefulness testing. We have actigraphy monitoring for suspected circadian disorders and unexplained hypersomnia.
