Biography

Dr Kuitert has a strong background in both Respiratory Medicine and General Medicine having trained in both in New Zealand and in the UK. After completing her PhD she became a Consultant Respiratory Physician in 2001, but with her  colleagues she contributes to the acute General Medicine rota.  She sees adults with respiratory problems such as breathlessness, cough, chest infections and pneumonia, suspected cancer, and suspected pulmonary emboli / DVT.

Dr Kuitert also sees patients with general medical problems where the symptoms do not necessarily suggest the appropriate specialist to see. Where patients have multiple medical problems they may see a number of specialists each with their own management plan; in these patients a general medical review to formulate a cohesive management plan that the patient can understand can be very helpful.

In 1999, Dr Kuitert set up an outpatient diagnostic service for DVT which reduced inpatient bed days by over 90%, and advisory service for diagnosis and management of pulmonary embolism (PE).  She has a strong background in research in a number of respiratory conditions (including PE), presenting the results at international conferences.
