Dr Duncan Powrie
Consultant in respiratory and general medicine
BSc Hons, MB ChB, FRCP
I graduated for the University of Liverpool in 1994 and trained in respiratory and general medicine in Nottingham and London. I have been a consultant at Southend University Hospital for ten years.
I have a particular interest in lung cancer and COPD but have a broad range of experience of respiratory conditions including cough, asthma, bronchiectasis, sleep apnoea, interstitial lung disease and respiratory infections.
I have presented at National and International meetings on subjects including COPD, lung cancer, bronchiectasis, patient education and medical training. I was extremely proud as Clinical Lead for respiratory medicine at Southend that we were shortlisted for Respiratory Team of the Year at the 2014 BMJ awards for our work on the Southend COPD psychology project. This work was the winner of the 2014 Excellence and Innovation Award for the British Thoracic Society. Our work on lung cancer was shortlisted for a BTS Quality Improvement Award in 2013.
I am Clinical Lead for respiratory medicine at Southend University Hospital and also Clinical Lead for lung cancer. I am a member of the East of England Clinical Senate Assembly. I have a keen interest in teaching and am an Honorary Senior Clinical Lecturer at Queen Mary University Hospital of London.
I welcome appropriate patients wishing to refer and pay for treatment themselves without the need for a GP's letter of referral.
Some of the principal treatments carried out by Dr Duncan Powrie at Spire include:
Respiratory and general medicine, sleep apnoea, asthma, COPD, cough, breathlessness, bronchiectasis, interstitial lung disease and lung cancer.
Spire Wellesley 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.

When not working I enjoy spending time with my wife and three children. I enjoy watching and playing sport. I am a keen follower of the (mis)fortunes of Ipswich Town FC. In 2015 I completed the London Triathlon and the Ride London Surrey 100 on successive weekends raising money for the British Lung Foundation.
