The respiratory team provides care for children with complex respiratory conditions across the North West and North Wales and care for the children of Liverpool with any respiratory condition.
We are a multidisciplinary team running 28 different specialised clinics with 6000 attendances each year. We have 600 inpatients admitted under our care each year and are involved with another 750 on a shared care basis working closely with other teams in the hospital.
The Respiratory Unit Research Group is linked to the Institute of Child Health, University of Liverpool and Local Research Networks and is one of the largest and most active research departments in the trust.
