Diabetes and Endocrinology

Welcome to the department


We offer a range of outpatient services for patients with diabetes or endocrinological (hormonal) disorders (e.g. thyroid disease, polycystic ovary syndrome).

How to get here

The Endocrinology centre is located opposite the North block car park. Please park in either the North Block car park on London Road or the multi-storey car park on Craven Road.  Cross London Road at the traffic lights and the centre is directly in front of you. The hospital car parks can get very busy, therefore, please consider parking at Queens Road, or other town centre car parks. There are also some pay and display parking areas in the roads near to the Diabetes and Endocrine Centre.

Parking is extremely limited at the Diabetes and Endocrine Centre.
