North Middlesex Hospital
At the North Middlesex Hospital, Dr Sheinman is lead Clinician for Asthma and Allergies, runs the asthma and allergy service and has been appointed Clinical Lead for Outpatient Services.
In his additional role as Lead Clinician for Bronchoscopy, he has introduced and set up the technique of Endobronchial Ultrasound-Assisted Transbronchial Node Aspiration (EBUS-TBNA) at the North Middlesex Hospital. This is an important new technique which allows relatively non-invasive diagnosis of diseases which may involve the mediastinum (central part of the chest) and which have previously been inaccessible except by operative techniques. The use of EBUS-TBNA results in a substantial improvement in the Lung Cancer Pathway for patients by providing non-operative diagnosis and staging and it is also very useful in diagnosing a variety of chest disorders such as tuberculosis, sarcoidosis and lymphoma.
Dr Sheinman has set up a collaborative multidisciplinary team meeting for Interstitial Lung Diseases and is a regular participant in the North Middlesex University Hospital Trust out of hours Care Rota.
Dr Sheinman has recently set up a new, Persistent Cough Clinic at the North Middlesex Hospital which utilises international best practice techniques to deal with this common but often problematic condition. He has recently been appointed to the British Thoracic Society Specialist Advisory Group on Cough.

Dr Sheinman trained initially in Pharmacy and obtained a BPharm(Hons) degree at the School of Pharmacy University of London, specializing in Pharmacology. Following this he was accepted for training at the Medical College of St Bartholomew’s Hospital.

Three years in asthma/histamine research as Research Fellow at Barts lead to the research degree of MD and an original discovery - that a very common respiratory bacteria (Haemophilus influenzae) is capable of the production of histamine in large quantities. There followed an appointment as Lecturer at the Royal Brompton Hospital, Senior Fellow in Allergy at St Mary's Hospital and later Consultant Chest Physician to the North Middlesex Hospital. He was elected Fellow of the Royal College of Physicians in 2005.
