Gastroenterology: We assess and manage patients presenting with a wide range of gastroenterological problems; liver pancreatic and bile duct disease. The gastroenterology service benefits from our Specialist Nurses who support our indigestion/heartburn and inflammatory bowel disease patients.
Diabetes and Endocrinology: We assess and manage patients presenting with a wide range of problems:
Diabetes - all types of diabetes; acute and long term complications including DKA, HHS, diabetic foot. The service has both in-patient and community diabetes specialist nurses and a dedicated Diabetes Education and Resource Centre.
Endocrinoloy - We manage all DGH-type endocrinology including thyroid, parathyroid, adrenal and pituitary disease. Endocrinology is a predominantly out-patient based specialty. Opportunities for physical examinations in clinics are currently limited because most are telephone clinics.
