Endocrinology is mainly concerned with disturbances of the endocrine (hormone) glands in adults. Our service is mainly an out-patient speciality, with clincs across London at Barnet Hospital, Chase Farm Hospital, Edgware Community Hospital, Finchley Hospital, Potters Bar Community Hospital and the Royal Free Hospital. The specialist nurses, dieticians and an endocrine investigation unit support our busy clinics. We pursue a very active research programme. By combining both clinical and laboratory research we maintain a place at the forefront of advances in this specialty. 

Our endocrine surgery unit comprises of four surgeons who have expertise in the assessment and treatment of common endocrine problems such as thyroid disease, including thyroid cancer, and parathyroid and adrenal diseases. The four surgeons work closely with the physicians in the department of endocrinology.

We offer: 

  • general endocrinology
  • laparoscopic (“keyhole”) and open adrenal surgery, including for cancer 
  • thyroid and parathyroid assessment and surgery
  • gynaecology 
  • surgery
  • acromegaly
  • testosterone 
  • neuro-endocrine tumours
  • antenatal.
