London Hyperbaric Medicine Private Care
The Hyperbaric Unit at Whipps Cross University Hospital has been providing urgent and elective Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy (HBOT) services to both NHS and private patients for over twenty years.
Our facility, which houses a large multiplace chamber and a smaller monoplace chamber, employs some of the best trained and most dedicated professionals working in this specialised field in the UK.
The facility at LHM is the only NHS hyperbaric unit in London to be commissioned by the NHS to treat the most critically ill patients.
Using state-of-the art equipment and technology we have established an unrivalled international reputation for providing safe and high-quality treatments and research.
Each patient is evaluated by one of our team of hyperbaric medicine physicians to determine whether HBOT is an appropriate adjunct therapy. Where necessary this may involve wound-mapping and transcutaneous oximetry assessments to inform the treatment plan.
We offer assessments and treatments for the full range of internationally accepted conditions responsive to Hyperbaric oxygen therapy and work closely with referring clinicians to make sure that your care is coordinated.
Many of these conditions are one of poor tissue healing as a result of diabetes or after radiotherapy for cancer treatment.
Unlike standard oxygen therapy, the chamber allows the delivery of Oxygen under high pressure (hyperbaric) to promote healing and improve quality of life.
All profits from the provision of our private patients services are used to support the delivery of NHS clinical care for the benefit of all patients.
Customized HBOT care plans are designed to promote the healing process and the patient’s experience of health benefits not achieved using other standard therapies. HBOT, combined with standard medical and/or surgical care, offers patients with an extremely effective treatment option and outcome for various medical conditions.
