Dr Michael Beckles

Long Covid, Respiratory Medicine

Medical interests: Acute medicine, acute respiratory conditions, pneumonia, asbestos-related lung disease, lung cancer and sarcoidosis. Specialist in bronchoscopy.

I am very actively involved in acute medicine, currently participating in a consultant-led one in four on-call service at the Royal Free Hospital. I am therefore very familiar with the acute presentation of the variety of medical problems and their management. Consequently, I am involved both in inpatient care and follow-up in the outpatient clinic. Expertise Accurate diagnosis is crucial to ensure that each patient receives the correct treatment. I see patients with a variety of acute respiratory and general medical diagnoses, such as pneumonia, breathlessness, a new or persistent cough and patients who present coughing up blood (haemoptysis). I have a particular interest in asbestos-related lung diseases, bronchoscopy, lung cancer and sarcoidosis. I have also contributed to national and international guidelines on the management of patients with lung cancer.

Dr Michael Beckles was educated in London and studied medicine in Manchester. He completed his postgraduate training in hospitals in and around Manchester and London.  


Consultant Physician in Respiratory and Acute Medicine at the Royal Free Hospital, London, and also an Honorary Consultant Physician at the Royal Brompton Hospital, London.
