Children's endocrinology

Paediatric endocrinologists look after children with hormone and development disorders.

Overview

Our leading paediatric endocrinologists treat children with a range of metabolic, growth and endocrine diseases.

Early detection of these conditions is key, and our paediatric endocrinologists offer an integrated diagnostic and treatment service, with access to other specialists in the hospital including vascular surgeons, radiologists, oncologists, ophthalmologists and cardiologists.

We also manage a range of endocrine diseases including thyroid disease and pituitary disorders. And if your child is diabetic, we offer a comprehensive care programme, including nutrition advice from our dieticians.

Our specialist consultants

Please note that we do not provide a paediatric intensive care unit. However, any deteriorating child will be quickly assessed and stabilised by a Resident Medical Officer (RMO) trained in paediatric intensive care, supported by an on-call Paediatric Intensive Care Consultant, before being transferred to the most appropriate paediatric intensive care provider by the Children’s Acute Transport Service (CATS).

“I had a great experience at the Cromwell Hospital; the staff were amazing, and is another level of professionalism compared to other hospitals I’ve stayed in.”
