Your respiratory system is crucial to your health and quality of life. Symptoms of a problem potentially being caused by your respiratory system include:
Common respiratory conditions that people need help managing include:
Any treatment will always be tailored to your specific needs to ensure you receive the best possible relief of symptoms.
Depending on your symptoms, you may be referred to specialists in other fields for further investigation and/or treatment if indicated. For example, if you are having chest pains but a respiratory cause has been ruled out, you may be referred to our colleagues in Cardiology.
This ensures your Consultant has access to your previous medical history and any relevant test results, such as a recent chest X-ray or blood test.
Your first appointment at BMI Sarum Road Hospital will be focused on getting clarity about the cause of your symptoms.
When you meet with your Consultant, they will talk with you about your symptoms. They will want to know things like:
They will usually carry out a physical examination of your chest and any other relevant systems, using a stethoscope to listen to your lungs as you inhale and exhale.
Further tests may be needed to aid diagnosis, including:
While some of these can be carried out on-site at BMI Bishops Wood Hospital, others will be arranged off-site for you. Positron Emission Tomography (PET) scans and other advanced investigations can also be requested outside the hospital if required.
Once a diagnosis has been made, your Consultant will talk through treatment options with you. If you have any questions or concerns, they will be very happy to discuss these with you during your private appointment.

We can quickly and easily arrange a private appointment for you with our experienced Consultant Respiratory Physician, so you will be able to get the help you need sooner.

Particularly complex respiratory cases can be discussed with other specialists to formulate the very best treatment plan for you.
