Endocrinology and Bone
We are one of the largest Endocrine and Bone Departments in Europe and the World, caring for a wide range of Endocrine conditions in children and young people. We aim to provide high-quality family orientated world class care for our children and young people. We see 2,500 children and young people per year in Endocrinology clinics. We also provide a wide range of Specialist Endocrine Services
We have a dedicated on-site service Medical Day Care Unit for Endocrine investigations and treatment enabling us to investigate and treat the majority of children as day cases and avoid unnecessary admissions which is usually much more convenient for families.
In addition to this we provide extensive Endocrine support and care to children and young people admitted under other specialist teams at the Children’s Hospital, as well as to other centres regionally, nationally and internationally.
We see referrals from all over the UK, and accept referrals from General Practitioners, District General Hospitals and Tertiary Specialist Services and from outside the UK.
Consultants in the team deliver outreach Endocrinology clinics to provide tertiary endocrine care to a number of District General Hospitals in the Midlands and beyond.
