About

An experienced Consultant combining Respiratory and Sleep Medicine with General Medicine and a strong Patient Focus.

I am a Consultant Chest and Sleep Physician and General Physician with 7 years of consultant experience in some of the leading hospitals in the United Kingdom like Barts and Royal London Hospital including a recent post at Kings College Hospital, London.

My training and experience include expertise in Sleep and Ventilation, Bariatrics, Tuberculosis and Interstitial lung and Pleural diseases and in particular COVID-19 related ILD. Also had the opportunity to train in Royal Brompton and Harefield, Guys and St Thomas Hospitals, Kings college hospital London ,UCLH(University College London Hospitals), Glenfield Hospital -Leicester.

I have had significant recent experience with managing acute respiratory presentations, including many COVID-19 cases in patients ranging from ages 17-100. I can offer a range of procedures, including performing and managing indwelling pleural catheters and endobronchial ultrasound.

On a management level I have been involved in establishing and improving several clinics and referral services. By combining my collaborative leadership style with experience in respiratory research, I was able to restructure a Sleep and Ventilation service as well as revise and implement guidelines for Non-Invasive Ventilation across an entire NHS Trust and design a new ward arrival process and manage the lead admission ward for COVID-19 patients, including setting up a virtual clinic for follow up of discharged patients in the early phase of the COVID-19 pandemic in the United Kingdom.

I am a member of:

- European Respiratory Society.

- British Thoracic Society.

- British Thoracic Oncology Group.

- UK Pleural Society.

- International Association for the Study of Lung Cancer.

- British Sleep Society.

- Thoracic Society of Australia and New Zealand.

- Society of Acute Medicine, UK.

- American association of Sleep Medicine

- European Sleep Research Society

- Royal Society of Medicine

And a Fellow of the Royal College of Physicians(FRCP) and American College of Chest Physicians(FCCP).

But I am most proud of his 2019 ,2020 and 2021 Certificates awarded for Excellence in Patient Care.

Explanation

Dr Pradeep was thoroughly professional and demonstrated experience and expertise when working in charge of his team to save my wife’s life. This is what I would hope for and expect from an NHS Consultant. Where he exceeded our expectations were in his qualities of communication and caring. He took the time to explain my wife’s serious condition with honesty and clarity, not just once but every step of the way. There was fear at first, but not of the unknown. Then he shared the good news as it developed. We felt as though he cared in a personal way. On one occasion when we had a concern, he was at my wife’s bed side within 10 minutes to put our minds at rest. At all times he made us feel as though he was available and there for us. Exceptional care, and an exemplar to other senior acute care consultants. Thank you again. My wife says it best ‘nice man’
