Your symptoms may be new, and you’d like to know what is causing them and how best to treat them. Alternatively, you may have an existing respiratory condition that has flared up and is no longer being effectively managed with your current treatment.
Whatever your symptoms and concerns, at The Manor Hospital you will receive consultant-led care to improve your symptoms and get you back to better respiratory health as soon as possible.

Effective treatments are available for a wide range of respiratory conditions and our experienced Consultant Respiratory Physicians would be delighted to help you.
