    About

    Professor Toby Maher studied at the University of Southampton’s School of Medicine.

    Following his initial medical training, he trained in respiratory medicine at Royal Brompton Hospital, the transplant unit at Harefield Hospital and at St Mary’s Hospital, Paddington. During his training, he gained a master’s (MSc) in respiratory medicine at Imperial College London.

    In 2005, Professor Maher was awarded a Wellcome Trust Clinical Research Fellowship.

    Professor Maher had done his homework well. Maggie had successfully gathered all the information from various sources needed to review my diagnosis. In some 45 minutes we had put together a plan to address the situation and expedite treatment. I had not met him in person but the FaceTime meeting was more than sufficient to establish an excellent rapport. I would also commend, Maggie, the Practice Manager - who so rapidly, efficiently and effectively arranged the on-line meeting.

    After reading many positive online reports I contacted Toby regarding advice on an elevated blood reading which indicated possible sarcoidosis, following a severe Covid Viral infection. We had a video consultation and he arranged a CT scan of my lungs. He then organised a follow up consultation and talked me through my issues etc. He is very thorough, pleasant to speak with and very knowledgeable. His Practice Manager Maggie is excellent, she adds great value to the whole interaction process and makes sure everything happens smoothly.

    I contacted Professor Maher on behalf of my mother after a recent diagnosis had left our family with uncertainty, fear and confusion around next steps. Professor Maher could not have been more helpful or approachable, we felt supported from the very first contact and we were provided with more clarity than we had received in the 8 months prior. All conversations were managed with empathy and understanding, which certainly helped my mother to feel "less of a nuisance". We are now in a position where we have clear information, a better than hoped for prognosis and feeling we have support we can rely on for the next phases of treatment. Thank you.
