Breathlessness

Intractable breathlessness is a common symptom in advanced cancer and a number of non-malignant conditions, such as chronic lung disease, heart failure and neuromuscular disorders are associated with it. The symptom is often poorly controlled, causing significant distress to patients, carers and families. Our expert physicians working within the field of Cancer Care are able to offer comprehensive assessment and advice regarding the management of many different symptoms both in the acute and primary care setting.

We also provide portable ventilator and oxygen support at home for managing respiratory symptoms.
