We are part of one of the largest scale developments in health & social care, as a devolved economy. This offers us unique opportunities which are not available in other

The Diabetes and Endocrine team serve a population of 800,000 and so have exceptional opportunities for those wishing to develop sub-speciality interest such as diabetic foot, transitional diabetes, pump clinics, sexual dysfunction & community clinics.

Diabetes and Endocrine management, along with General Medicine expertise.
