Dynamic investigations for children and adolescents are held on the Jungle Ward Day Unit. We also work closely with paediatric urology for the management of patients with complex DSD. Joint transition clinics are held bi-monthly with an adult endocrinologist at the Thomas Addison Unit on site.
St George’s University Hospital is one of the main regional trauma and neurosurgical service of London. The paediatric endocrine team plays a key role in supporting these complex patients with peri-operative endocrine complications such as diabetes insipidus.
The paediatric diabetes team at St George’s University Hospital is part of the South West Thames diabetes network, and covers Wandsworth and Merton Counties of London with a current case load of approximately 150 cases aged under the age of 19 years. The service is funded by the Best Practice Tariff.
A full range of diabetes treatment is offered by our service with approximately 30% of patients on insulin pumps and a selected few also on adjunct continuous monitoring devices. All patient records of communication and parameters required for the best practice tariff and NPDA are recorded prospectively in the designated paediatric database, Twinkle.
