Glenfield Hospital

The Respiratory Specialties, Clinical Immunology and Allergy  Business Unit comprises the clinical Departments of Respiratory Medicine, Thoracic Surgery, Clinical Immunology and Allergy.

We provide specialised services for investigation and treatment of patients with respiratory conditions from Leicestershire, Rutland and surrounding areas.  The Department has developed rapidly over the last decade and is the only respiratory facility for the whole district of 1 million population. The inpatient base is at Glenfield Hospital but clinics are held throughout the district. We work closely with Thoracic Surgery and General Medicine. Thoracic surgical referrals are also taken from other adjoining counties.

Our process means that emergency patients are admitted directly to the Glenfield Hospital CDU.  We are currently admitting 37-47 patients a day.  Respiratory Medicine has also been leading with admission avoidance strategies including piloting ambulatory care for patients with suspected pulmonary emboli and pleural disease. 

Respiratory Medicine provides a full range of diagnostic investigations including a fully equipped respiratory physiology lab, advanced bronchoscopic techniques including endobronchial ultrasound and medical thoracoscopy. There are supporedt by CT, MRI and radionuclide imaging, palliative care, pain services and extensive intensive care facilities.

 

There are four major areas of research interest within the department. These are the assessment of airway inflammation (Prof I D Pavord, Dr RH Green, Prof  C Brightling);   Eosinophil and mast cell biology in asthma (Prof Wardlaw/ Prof P Bradding, Prof  C Brightling);       Disability and rehabilitation in COPD (Prof Morgan/ Prof Singh/Dr Steiner);  Lung cancer and mesothelioma (Mr Waller/Dr Peake/Dr Bennett/Dr Free/Dr Agrawal)
