Pulmonary hypertension

Pulmonary hypertension service at Royal Brompton Hospital

The pulmonary hypertension service at Royal Brompton Hospital is part of the National Pulmonary Hypertension Service (NPHS) for England. The NPHS provides investigation and treatment to patients with pulmonary hypertension according to national guidelines and within the NHS national commissioning framework.

The multidisciplinary team provides care for patients with pulmonary hypertension which includes:


  • A full diagnostic investigation
  • Inpatient and outpatient management of pulmonary hypertension
  • Long-term follow-up


Our patients are mainly from the south of England and Wales. However, as a tertiary centre for adult congenital heart disease (ACHD), we also see patients from all over the UK.

Shared care

We have developed a shared care service with St George’s Hospital and Southampton General Hospital. This designated service is designed to help improve patient care through:


  • Easy accessibility
  • Reduced travel time
  • Reduced need for inpatient stay
  • Reduced delay in referral providing investigation
  • Earlier treatment

Our commitment

We are committed to providing the highest clinical care through:


  • Evidence-based medicine
  • Up-to-date national guidelines


We will always try to improve the quality of life and the personal experience of our patients and their carers.
