Paediatric respiratory service at Kings College Hospital
We are a specialist paediatric respiratory service and helped pioneer the development of the specialty in the UK.
We diagnose and treat infants and children with all types of respiratory (breathing) problems, and specialise in complex illnesses. We see children referred by local GPs as well as by hospitals in south London and south east England. Our outpatients clinics include general respiratory, asthma, difficult asthma, tuberculosis, non-CF bronchiectasis, ventilation (NIV and invasive), and a weekly rapid access clinics. We 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, and give advice and support to services such as general paediatrics and critical care. We are also an accredited training centre and we do research into many areas of paediatric respiratory medicine and cystic fibrosis.
