The Respiratory Department at Newham University Hospital has an excellent reputation for innovation and focusing on delivering high value multidisciplinary, holistic care of patients admitted with acute respiratory deterioration and those living with long-term conditions. We are looking for an equally dedicated individual to enhance the current profile and bring experience within the range of respiratory areas that complement our existing consultant led services, which includes Sleep Disordered Breathing, Pleural Disease and Tuberculosis.
