Facilities and services
We have a Respiratory and Cystic Fibrosis Unit (RCFU) providing improved access for respiratory and CF patients who need ad-hoc reviews. We also have multi-disciplinary outpatient reviews for complex patients, and overnight cardio-respiratory monitoring. There is a dedicated Ocean Ward facility for patients requiring long-term ventilation - this is a home-from-home environment with a sensory room and family-friendly facilities.
Our services include overnight oximetry, overnight sleep studies (cardio-respiratory monitoring), flexible bronchoscopy, specialist lung function tests (most of which are not performed elsewhere in the region), assessment/monitoring for non-invasive ventilation (NIV) and invasive ventilation, and allergy skin tests.
