Our aim is to provide a high quality NHS service for children with endocrine (hormonal) conditions
We offer diagnosis, treatment and support for a whole range of common and complex endocrine conditions in children, within the West of Scotland and for some rare conditions across Scotland.
We are an accredited training centre for Paediatric Endocrinology & Diabetes, and have trained a number of doctors both within and outside the UK.
We have a number of specialist clinics/services, such as Complex Bone, Turners, Prader-Willi, Hyperinsulinism, Gender dysphoria, DSD.(Clinics, Specialist Clinics)
The consultants are supported by a team of endocrine nurse specialists and junior doctors. (Team)
How to access our service
For your child to be seen in our service, you will need to be referred by your GP. You may be also referred by a paediatrician you already see.
Referrals to the outreach clinics are made through the local paediatricians.
What to expect if you come to see us
You will be seen by one of the team who will assess and decide if your condition requires any further tests.
There may be a number of other health professionals in the same clinic room depending which clinic/service you are attending
As we are a teaching and training hospital, there may be medical students and trainee doctors in the clinic room too.
Following the assessment some blood tests may be performed on the day of your clinic appointment and in some cases x-rays too.
If needed you may be asked to return on another day to Ward 1C, our Daycase Investigation Unit, for further more complex tests. (Daycase Investigation Unit)
