The Lane-Fox Respiratory Unit provides highly specialised care for patients from throughout the United Kingdom, who are dependent on ventilators to breathe, due to an accident; illness or neuro-muscular disease such as Polio, Scoliosis, Muscular Dystrophy, Motor Neurone and Guillain-Barre syndrome.
The Lane-Fox Patients' Association has been working in partnership with the Unit since 1974 and is committed to improving the quality of life for patients and their families.
During 2004, the Association, in conjunction with Guy's & St Thomas' Charity and Guy's and St Thomas' NHS Foundation Trust funded a refurbishment and extension of the Lane-Fox Unit. Funds provide much needed equipment and facilities for patients that are otherwise not provided by the NHS.
