  •  General referrals

    To request lung function tests for a patient please use EPR. You will need to search for 'respiratory function'. You will then find tick boxes for the different tests available. Tests are available on both sites apart from 'hyperventilation studies' and 'fitness to fly' which are only carried out at Guy's Hospital.

    To request CPET for a patient please use EPR. You will need to search for 'cardiopulmonary exercise test'. This test is only carried out at Guy's Hospital.

    Pleas note that if you require a cardiac exercise test (in cardiology on the St Thomas' site) then please search for 'exercise' on EPR.

  • Urgent/two week wait referrals

    Select urgent (instead of routine) on the respiratory function and cardiopulmonary exercise test request forms and these patients will be seen within two weeks.
