Endocrinology

About

Endocrinology is a specialty service that sees patients with a range of hormonal diseases. For most of our patients their problems occur because they either produce too much or have too little of a particular hormone. Deficiency of a hormone can cause symptoms that are difficult to diagnose and that make patients feel unwell in peculiar ways. If your GP thinks that your symptoms are due to a hormonal deficiency or excess then you may be referred to see one of our endocrinologists.

We have a nationally recognised pituitary service for specialised tumours such as Cushing's syndrome and acromegaly, and our outcomes for the treatment of endocrine tumours are some of the best in Europe.

I have only very positive things to say about all the staff I have encountered on Mint Wing. I have been going there for many years and the staff are all extremely kind and caring. I feel very supported by them.

Staff
 

I visit the hospital several times a year and have always found ward staff and general hospital staff to be very obliging and helpful irrespective of their roles. The general impression of the hospital is that it is clean and well cared for.
