We have the facilities to provide None Invasion Ventilation (NIV) on the ward and we have a dedicated procedure room where chest drains are inserted and other pleural procedures take place.
We have a good support network of specialist nurses and consultants who support both patients and staff whilst incorporating bespoke respiratory training within the clinical area.
