Endocrinology

We diagnose and treat patients with all endocrine conditions. Some of the most common conditions diagnosed and treated are

  • Thyroid diseases either under active or over active
  • Thyroid glands
  • Thyroid cancer
  • Adrenal conditions
  • Polycystic and other hormonal fertility problems
  • Hormonal weight problems.  

We have a specialist one-stop clinic for thyroid nodules and goitre in order to assess, ultrasound and biopsy in a single clinic visit. We have three general endocrine clinics; there is a weekly clinic for pregnant mothers with endocrine conditions who will need to be followed throughout their pregnancy by a specialist endocrinologist as well as an Obstetrician.
 
We use low dose radiotherapy to treat over active or enlarged thyroid glands.  
 
There is a specialist children’s paediatric clinic held jointly with the paediatric endocrinologist and a visiting paediatric professor from Great Ormond street.
 
We have trained staff who manages the specialist endocrine investigations on the medical day ward.   
 
We have close links with specialist thyroid surgeons, parathyroid surgeons for calcium conditions and pituitary surgeons as well as shared care with the follow up of thyroid cancers with the Royal Marsden hospital. Our team includes two consultants, two specialist registrars, one staff grade and a team of investigation nurses.  

Clinics

These take place in the main outpatients departments of Croydon University Hospital.  

There is a one-stop thyroid nodule clinic with ultrasound in the main outpatients department on a Monday morning.  

There is part of each general endocrine clinic on a Monday afternoon and Thursday afternoon, which are put aside for antenatal patients.  

There is a quarterly joint paediatric endocrine clinic in the Willows paediatric outpatient department on Tuesday afternoons. 

Services will return to Purley Hospital when the refurbishment is complete in the summer of 2013.
