Dr Dipak Mukherjee
MBBS, MD, FRCP
I am consultant physician at Spire Hartswood private hospital in Brentwood, Essex, offering private general medical care in our clean and comfortable private hospitals.
I see patients with a wide range of problems involving the respiratory system - ranging from chest infections, tumours, asthma, COPD and interstitial lung disease.
In my NHS work, I am clinical lead for COPD, tuberculosis, pleural disease, oxygen and EBUS (endobronchial ultrasound) at the Essex Cardiothoracic Centre in Basildon. I also have an interest in bronchoscopy, medical thoracoscopy and lung cancer and work closely with the cardiothoracic surgeons at the Essex Cardiothoracic Centre.
I have been working at Basildon University Hospital as a consultant chest physician since 2001. Before this I trained in Manchester, including the Heart Lung Centre at Wythenshawe Hospital.
I won the national Hospital Doctor award for COPD in 2005 and have won a chief executive’s gold award in my NHS hospital for excellent clinical commitment.
Some of the principal treatments carried out by Dr Dipak Mukherjee at Spire include:
COPD (chronic obstructive lung disease), tuberculosis, pleural disease, asthma, bronchoscopy and lung cancer, medical thoracoscopy, EBUS (endobronchial ultrasound).
Spire Hartswood 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.
