About Dr Matthew Hind

Dr Hind trained in London in general internal and respiratory medicine and was appointed Consultant Respiratory Physician to Royal Brompton Hospital in 2007. He established a lab at the National Heart and Lung Institute, Imperial College to investigate human lung development and repair/regeneration which he believes will offer future cures for many respiratory diseases. In 2019, he established the National NHS Rare disease clinical network on Congenital Thoracic Malformations.


Over the last 16 years, he has been involved in leading care of patients in complex multi-disciplinary teams worldwide. He has a large family, enjoys being outdoors and inherited a primal interest in salmon and sea trout fishing.
