Dr Patrick Flood-Page
Consultant in Respiratory Medicine
MBChB FRCP MD
I am a senior consultant in respiratory medicine with wide experience in the management of lung conditions. I am an expert in the treatment of airways disease (for example asthma, COPD, bronchiectasis, chronic cough) and in interstitial lung disease including unexplained breathlessness.
I qualified from Edinburgh medical school in 1991 then completed my training in London spending three years in research at the Royal Brompton Hospital studying new asthma treatments. I became a consultant in respiratory medicine at Barts and the Royal London Hospitals moving to Wales in 2003 where I work in Aneurin Bevan Healthboard.
I have recently stepped down after 10 years leading training and recruitment to respiratory medicine in the UK. I am a lecturer at Cardiff University medical school. I provide medical advice and support to the British Lung Foundation in Wales and to Respiratory Alliance Wales having previously served as chair for these organisations.
Spire Cardiff Hospital is only able to provide Covid-19 tests to patients undergoing surgery at our hospital. Covid-19 testing or antibody tests are not available as a standalone service.
