QEH Respiratory Unit Temporarily Suspends Lung Function Testing

The public is kindly asked to note that until further notice, all lung function testing conducted by the Queen Elizabeth Hospital’s (QEH) Respiratory Unit has been suspended.

In May 2018, the hospital’s Respiratory Unit was relocated to Ward A6 to facilitate the Unit’s refurbishment. However, on Monday, June 17, 2019, Ward A6 sustained minor damage necessitating the temporary closure of the ward to facilitate urgent repairs to its roof. This has resulted in the relocation of the Respiratory Unit to Room 15 of Ward A5, and the interim suspension of lung function testing.

Patients affected by the temporary suspension of lung function testing will be contacted to facilitate the rescheduling of their appointments; whilst the Unit’s pulmonary (chest) out-patient clinic will continue operations as per usual.

The Board of Management of the Queen Elizabeth Hospital regrets any inconvenience caused, and looks forward to your continued support, and cooperation as we continue to strive towards “Getting Better Together”.
