He undertook his training in London, with time spent at The London Chest, Royal Brompton and Harefield, St Bartholomew’s, The Royal Free, The Royal London and St Mary’s Hospitals.

    He was subsequently awarded a fellowship to undertake research into the effects of chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD), a smoking-related lung disease, and its treatment on cardiac structure and function using advanced imaging techniques including cardiac magnetic resonance imaging (MRI). The work undertaken has, and continues, to be presented at international conferences and resulted in multiple peer-reviewed publications and awards, including those from the British Lung Foundation. For this work he was awarded a PhD degree from the University of London.

    In his current post at Northwick Park and Central Middlesex Hospitals, Dr Stone manages patients with the entire range of respiratory conditions. He is currently the Trust Lead at London North West University Healthcare NHS trust for Sleep Medicine where over 500 sleep studies are undertaken annually. As a Consultant Respiratory Physician he is consulted about cough, breathlessness, wheezing, sputum, coughing up blood, chest pains, snoring, and all other symptoms related to the lungs. He treats patients with persistent cough, breathlessness, asthma, chronic bronchitis and emphysema, chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD), lung cancer, pulmonary fibrosis, chest infections, pneumonia, tuberculosis (TB), bronchiectasis, pulmonary nodules, pleural disease, pleural effusion, pulmonary embolism, sarcoidosis, pneumothorax and sleep apnoea.

    He is an experienced bronchoscopist including standard and endobronchial ultrasound guided (EBUS), biopsies and undertakes respiratory fitness to fly testing and cardio-pulmonary exercise testing.

    Dr Stone has extensive experience of acute, general and emergency medicine. He is involved in the acute on-call rota at Northwick Park admitting up to 50 emergencies per day.
