About Endocrinology, Diabetes and Metabolism

Our highly experienced team is made up of endocrinologists, endocrine surgeons and diabetes experts, specialist nurses and dietitians. They specialize in treating patients with endocrine conditions, including hypothyroidism, diabetes and polycystic ovary syndrome. An endocrine multidisciplinary team (MDT) has been established, meaning that patients with complex cases are reviewed by a whole team of experts to ensure the best possible care. Additional support comes from a diabetes nurse, who works with patients to identify problems and prescribe medication, and from highly trained dieticians who create tailored menus for diabetic patients to check that they are receiving optimal nutrition during their stay.
