We care for patients with hormonal and metabolic problems.
We treat patients who have problems with the main organs that secrete hormones – pituitary, thyroid, parathyroids, adrenals, pancreas, ovaries and testes. Problems can occur with other organs that produce abnormal hormone levels.
Symptoms occur from an excess or deficiency of hormones.
We work closely with our surgical colleagues when patients need thyroid and parathyroid surgery. Where appropriate, we may offer you minimally invasive surgery for parathyroid adenomas (non-cancerous tumours).
We’re part of the Oxford Cancer Network for thyroid cancer and provide a comprehensive thyroid nodule service. Our close links with Oxford mean we can offer you pituitary surgery. We make the initial diagnosis and follow-up with you locally.
Gynaecological endocrinology clinics
We specialise in female reproductive disorders, particularly polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS) and hirsutism. We have strong links with our fertility expert colleagues.
How to access our outpatient clinics
You’ll need a referral from your GP. We’ll then send you an appointment letter with details on which hospital you’ll need to go to.
Please give us 2 to 4 weeks notice if you need to change or cancel your appointment.
