Dr Omi Narayan
Consultant Respiratory Paediatrician
FRCPCH, MSc (Respiratory & Allergy), MBBS
I have been working as a Respiratory Paediatrician (paediatric pulmonologist) at the Royal Manchester Children’s Hospital, Manchester since 2015. I specialise in all aspects of paediatric respiratory medicine – namely any condition that affects a child’s lungs and airways (breathing tubes/windpipe). This may manifest in a number of ways, most commonly noisy breathing (wheeze, croup), persistent and recurrent cough, breathlessness or difficulty breathing, recurrent chest infections and allergy related disorders.
I lead the bronchoscopy, sleep and non-invasive ventilation services at the children’s hospital. I am also an Honorary Senior Lecturer at the University of Manchester and regularly teach medical students and postgraduate doctors.
I qualified in 2003 and did my paediatric specialist rotation in London including Evelina Children’s and Great Ormond Street Hospital. I did my subspecialty training in paediatric respiratory medicine at Birmingham Children’s Hospital, before joining Manchester Children’s Hospital as a consultant.
I am actively engaged in research and training and have widely published in peer reviewed journals. I am the Quality Advisor on RCPCH CSAC that delivers the national training in paediatric respiratory medicine in the UK.
Some of the principal treatments carried out by Dr Omi Narayan at Spire include:
Spire Manchester 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.
