Welcome

This website is for patients who have experienced, or continue to have, symptoms that might mean they have lung cancer. This does not mean you have lung cancer but the symptoms require further investigation to find out what the cause is.

All patients are different and the symptoms they have vary. For this reason each person has different tests to find out what is causing their symptoms.

Reasons why your GP has referred you:

You have been referred to the hospital to see a chest physician via a fast track referral because you may have experienced or continue to experience any of the following symptoms:

  • A chest infection that doesn't get better.
  • Coughing up blood.
  • A cough that is changing or troubling you more.
  • Feeling more breathless than normal.
  • Chest or shoulder pain.
  • Voice changes, for example hoarseness, that last for more than three weeks.

 The Team

  • Elizabeth Gamble - consultant respiratory physician
  • Jim Catterall - consultant respiratory physician
  • Nabil Jarad - consultant respiratory physician
