Somerset respiratory and sleep centre

Respiratory

The Respiratory services provided by Musgrove Park Hospital are organised from excellent facilities within the Somerset Lung Centre and cover five key strands of work: Outpatient services are delivered via clinics in The Somerset Lung Centre and the surrounding community hospitals; In-patient services are delivered primarily on Coleridge, Portman Wards and the Acute Medical Unit (AMU) at MPH; a COPD assessment and early discharge service (THREADS) is offered at MPH; comprehensive diagnostic and support services are offered for the full range of lung and breathing disorders via the Lung Laboratory, sleep laboratory and bronchoscopy unit; teaching, audit and research form the final area of activity, for which the Department has a National reputation.
