The respiratory tract is the system that allows you to breathe air into your lungs and back out again. Our cardiovascular and thoracic services, primary ciliary dyskinesia facilities and the respiratory centre all contribute to the diagnosis and treatment of the respiratory system.

The respiratory service provides a comprehensive range of easily accessible outpatient services to care for both local and regional patients, which includes subspecialty clinics.

We also have strong links with the Respiratory Biomedical Research Unit at the University of Southampton.
