“I have been suffering with Long Covid for 5 months without adequate support or knowledge from the NHS. Dr Bloch showed a thorough understanding and empathy to my situation. Relevant tests were administered and meetings with Dr Bloch before and after. My experience with Dr Bloch and One Wellbeck were so helpful and the service provided excellent. I am highly recommending the help i received to other Long Covid sufferers, thank you so much.“

    About

    I spend most of my NHS practice looking after lung cancer patients. It's my aim is to make sure patients have rapid access to diagnostics and all the support they need through their pathway, including timely reassurance and the discharge of patients who don’t have lung cancer. Imperial College Healthcare NHS Trust has one of the best lung cancer survival rates in the country, and I use my NHS expertise to similarly look after my private patients.

    Since the COVID-19 pandemic began I have been looking after patients with COVID in and out of hospital. I have experience in managing patients with Long- COVID and understand the complexities of this condition and the need to approach care hollistically. It is my aim to exclude or diagnosis any respiratory damage caused by the infection and then work with you to support you into recovery. 

    I trained at St Mary Hospital and completed my PhD at the Royal Brompton Hospital. I have many years’ experience of looking after very unwell respiratory patients in high dependency care, and in my current role, I am responsible for all of the lung cancer referrals to Imperial as well as the respiratory high dependency units. I also see and looks after all general respiratory issues, run a busy general respiratory clinic, cover the wards and I am part of the general medical on call rota.

    Dr Bloch is a complete professional. Concerned not only with her specialised area, she has listened to my concerns and cared for my wellbeing, while taking into account the impact of my multi system disease. In short she has been a whole-person doctor to me and has given me the confidence to enable me to build my recovery.

    I am so grateful that I was referred to Dr Bloch. I felt I was in very safe hands, as Dr Bloch was meticulous and thorough and made me feel genuinely heard. My consultations with her were not just a box-ticking exercise, but instead a real conversation in which I felt comfortable to ask any questions I had about my condition and well-being.

    I have worked closely with Dr Bloch over the last two years and would have no hesitation in recommending her for respiratory advice. As the clinical lead of one of the largest lung cancer services in the UK, she is particularly experienced in the diagnosis and management of this condition. She will take the time to talk things through fully with her patients and thoroughly address expectations and concerns.

    Dr Bloch is a valued colleague, whom I have worked closely with for many years. She has supported extensively patients of mine with a variety of respiratory problems and continues to do so. She has experience in acute and chronic presentations and tailors treatment plans to individual patient needs. I will continue to utilize her expertise in the care of patients than require Respiratory Medicine support and recommend her services.
