Endocrinology & Metabolism
The Endocrine Division consists of an in-patient metabolic ward, ambulatory care centres for diabetes and osteoporosis, and the endocrine laboratory which was first established in the early 1960's. These facilities have provided service for patient management, and opportunities for training and stimulus for research. Its laboratory, recently relocated located on the 8th floor of the Laboratory Block, Medical Faculty Building, is equipped with state-of-the-art facilities for genomic and proteomic research in endocrinology, diabetes and metabolism. The availability of expertise in endocrine imaging, pituitary and endocrine surgery, and an up-dated clinical biochemistry service, also help to establish within the Queen Mary Hospital a centre of excellence in endocrinology.
