Access / Referrals

Direct referrals can be made by letter or by fax to 0117 3423522.  Referrals for resection of possible lung or chest malignancy are usually made through local lung cancer multidisciplinaryteams (MDTs).

Clinics

Pre-operative patients are usually seen in a "one stop" clinic at Bristol Royal Infirmary (BRI).  This involves meeting the surgical team, nurse specialist (if required) and the pre-operative assessment clinic.

Follow up clinics take place at BRI, Southmead (North Bristol) and at local hospitals in Gloucester, Bath, Weston, Yeovil and Taunton.

Inpatients

Adult in-patient services are provided at the BRI.  Our children's surgery is performed at Bristol Royal Hospital For Children (BRHC).

Conditions Treated

Lung, mediastinal, chest wall and intrathoracic metastatic tumours are all treated. 

We deal with the surgical treatment of major pleural infection, pneumothorax, complications of COAD and biopsy procedures for lung, pleural and mediastinal disease.

We perform corrective surgery for chest wall conditions including pectus carinatum and excavatum.
