Professor Jon Bennett

British Thoracic Society

From a non medical background, Jon still has to pinch himself about how lucky he was to have found medicine even in our strange COVID19 and post COVID19 world.  He is grateful to have found respiratory medicine and to have had great support from the BTS and his respiratory colleagues throughout his career.  Jon has been a consultant since 2000, firstly in Derby, and then from 2004 in the nationally renowned Glenfield Hospital.

Jon is a COVID19 survivor – swab negative – terrible self technique, antibody positive.

Jon can be seen doing his bit for the environment; cycle commuting most days to and from Glenfield Hospital. As a native Wulfrunian he has the curse of supporting the mighty Wolverhampton Wanderers.

Clinical Interests: Lung cancer, interventional respiratory procedures, medical education, general respiratory medicine.
