Diabetes and Endocrinology

We provide specialist care to patients with diabetes and endocrinology-related problems.

Services are provided at our main sites - Florence Nightingale Community Hospital and Queen's Hospital Burton - and we provide specialist diabetes clinics across locations in the community to ensure patients can access services easily. 

The Derby endocrinology department is part of the regional multidisciplinary groups for thyroid cancer and for pituitary disease.

Our specialist clinics are multi-disciplinary, and include consultants, nurses, dieticians and psychologists to ensure specialist care.
