Children and young people's endocrinology 

The joint London Centre for Paediatric Endocrinology consists of Great Ormond Street (GOSH) and UCLH. Together we are one of the largest child and adolescent endocrine centres in Europe and are internationally recognised for our research. Where possible we aim to treat our patients in the right environment. Children 0-13 are seen at GOSH and teenagers at UCLH. We are also happy to take direct GP referrals at the UCLH site.

Our consultants work across both sites and we are supported by a dedicated team of specialist nurses, psychologists, dieticians, psychiatrists and psychotherapists play specialists and activity coordinators.
