The department aims to reach out to patients in the community and have developed outreach clinics at Fareham Community Hospital and Gosport War Memorial Hospital. Members of the staff represent local patients on National committees thereby developing National guidelines tailored to the local needs.

The respiratory department is very pro-active and has a very active interventional program providing procedures locally and thereby avoiding patients being referred to other hospitals.

The respiratory department prides in taking part in various clinical trials which gives an opportunity for our patients to have access to new medications by enrolling in clinical trials. The department has an active interest in clinical trials on asthma, COPD and pleural disease.
