He regularly performs pleural procedures and bronchoscopy procedures and he supervises and performs cardio-pulmonary exercise tests on a weekly basis. Dr Knight is a member of the Lung Cancer multi-disciplinary team at West Hertfordshire Hospitals, working closely with colleagues at Mount Vernon, University College and Harefield hospitals.

Dr Knight works closely with his colleagues in the Chest Clinic as well as colleagues in Respiratory Physiology, Cardiology, Physiotherapy, Speech and Language Therapy, Radiology and Thoracic surgery to ensure that patients treated by him receive the best possible care.
