Conditions we treat
Diagnosis and treatment for tuberculosis at our TB clinic – the largest in North Central London – a dedicated multi-disciplinary lung cancer service,an asthma and allergy clinic and management of chronic obstruction pulmonary disease (COPD), including non-invasive ventilation.
There is a comprehensive sleep service with a dedicated sleep laboratory to assess patients at home or in hospital and facilities to initiate continuous positive airway pressure (CPAP) treatment and follow up.
Respiratory clinics are held on weekday mornings and afternoons, co-located with X-ray and lung function facilities.

Refer a patient
GP referral via e-RS
As part of the new NHS standard contract, we only accept referrals from GPs to consultant-led clinics through the e-RS. Faxed or paper referrals will be rejected and will not be posted.
For rejected referrals, the GP will be informed within two days that their referral has been rejected. It will then be the responsibility of the referring GP to resubmit the referral using e-RS.
NHS e-Referral service
If you wish to refer a patient, you can do it using the NHS e-Referral service (e-RS).
You can view available appointment slots and book the appointment before your patient leaves the surgery. If there are no clinic slots are available via e-RS, you can still refer your patient to us by selecting the ‘defer to provider’ option on e-RS.
If the patient wants to arrange the appointment outside of the surgery, please make sure you give them their booking reference number and e-RS password.
If you can’t find a service on e-RS, you can search for the condition or review the
Please remember it is the GP's responsibility to assess the clinical need for any initial patient transport and for the provision of that first visit.
