Diabetes and endocrinology

Endocrinology is the study and treatment related to the endocrine system, which is made up of a series of glands which produce hormones.

Our endocrinology units provide diagnosis, investigation and treatment of endocrine disorders. The consultant-led service provides expertise in thyroid and pituitary disease, adrenal disorders and calcium and metabolic bone disease.

There is a full range of laboratory diagnostic tests available, including ultrasound and MRI scanning.

The endocrinology consultants often work with their colleagues in neurosurgery, paediatrics and gynaecology to provide a comprehensive multidisciplinary service.
