Dr Peter Turkington
Consultant Respiratory Physician
MB ChB, MRCP, MD
I am a consultant in respiratory and general medicine and I have been a Consultant Respiratory Physician at Hope Hospital since 2003. I qualified at Leeds University in 1993 and underwent postgraduate training in the Yorkshire region. Since taking up my consultant post I have set up an NHS service for patients with obstructive sleep apnoea and I run a joint sleep clinic for patients with other forms of sleep disorders. I am the lead clinician for ventilatory failure at Hope Hospital and I run the acute non-invasive ventilation service.
My main areas of clinical interest are sleep disordered breathing and ventilatory failure. In addition to, asthma and COPD.
Some of the principal treatments carried out by Dr Peter Turkington 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.
I am married to Louise, who is a Consultant Paediatrician. Together we have two young children, Anna and Daniel, who are a never ending source of amusement and account for the majority of their free time outside of work! When the opportunity arises I can be found on the golf course working on my handicap or watching rugby.
