Dr Kandesamy Ganeshalingam

Consultant Physician


Specialises in

I completed my post graduate training in Cardiff in 2000. I joined Southend University Hospital in 2004 after being a consultant Physician at Queen Elizabeth Hospital, Norfolk for three and a half years.

I have wide experience and provide a comprehensive general and respiratory service. I lead the Asthma Services at Southend University Hospital and I represent South Essex as Lead Clinician for Mesothelioma at Essex Lung Cancer Network. I take a keen interest in teaching and am a member of the North East Thames Respiratory Specialist Registrar Training Committee and a member of British Thoracic Society / Royal College of Physicians Knowledge based assessment question setting group.

I welcome appropriate patients wishing to refer and pay for treatment themselves without the need for a GP's letter of referral.
