Dr John O'Reilly
Consultant in Respiratory Medicine
MB, B.Chir. MA, MRCP, FRCP
"I am pleased to have excellent facilities at Spire Hospitals to provide consultations in respiratory and sleep disorders."
I have special interests in asthma, COPD and sleep breathing disorders (snoring and sleep apnoea), and wide experience in sleep disorders including restless legs syndrome, sleep-walking and insomnia.
I have been a Regional Lead Consultant in Respiratory and Sleep Medicine for over 30 years following training in Cambridge, London, Edinburgh, Bristol, and Stanford, USA.
I was National Clinical Adviser to the NICE COPD guidelines and am a certified European Expert Sleep Specialist.
I have been an adviser on sleep management to national amateur and professional sports teams and Primary Care Clinical Commissioners. I am also a regular speaker at national and international conferences and a lecturer at Liverpool and Manchester Universities.
Some of the principal treatments carried out by Dr John O'Reilly at Spire include:
Respiratory investigation and treatments for asthma and chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD). Sleep study investigation (polysomnography) and treatments for sleep apnoea, restless legs syndrome, insomnia and sleep-walking.
Spire Fylde Coast 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.
