Dr Susannah Bloch Respiratory Medicine

Expert in: Breathlessness, Troublesome cough, Lung Cancer, Pleural Effusion + 5 more

I spend most of my NHS practice looking after lung cancer patients. It's my aim is to make sure patients have rapid access to diagnostics and all the support they need through their pathway, including timely reassurance and the discharge of patients who don’t have lung cancer. Imperial College Healthcare NHS Trust has one of the best lung cancer survival rates in the country, and I use my NHS expertise to similarly look after my private patients.

Since the COVID-19 pandemic began I have been looking after patients with COVID in and out of hospital. I have experience in managing patients with Long- COVID and understand the complexities of this condition and the need to approach care hollistically. It is my aim to exclude or diagnosis any respiratory damage caused by the infection and then work with you to support you into recovery. 

I trained at St Mary Hospital and completed my PhD at the Royal Brompton Hospital. I have many years’ experience of looking after very unwell respiratory patients in high dependency care, and in my current role, I am responsible for all of the lung cancer referrals to Imperial as well as the respiratory high dependency units. I also see and looks after all general respiratory issues, run a busy general respiratory clinic, cover the wards and I am part of the general medical on call rota.

What is a Respiratory (Chest) Doctor?

A Respiratory physician specialises in the diagnosis and treatment of disorders of the lungs and breathing tubes.

When to see a Respiratory Doctor?

You may need to see a respiratory (chest) doctor if you have been diagnosed with a lung condition or if you are experiencing breathing problems due to cancer, asthma, pneumonia, chronic lung disease and other respiratory conditions. Respiratory doctors are specialised in performing bronchoscopy and can request tests such as lung function tests, CT scans and blood gases to help diagnosis. Respiratory doctors can treat a number of common conditions including COPD (smoking lung disease), asthma, fibrosis, lung cancer, bronchiectasis and asbestos-related lung disease.
