Diabetes

What we do

We provide a comprehensive diabetes service across both hospitals, with close links to colleagues working in other teams to help provide a seamless experience of care for patients. Although the services are arranged slightly differently across sites, both are concerned with the investigation and management of diabetes, including emergencies and additional complications.

Chelsea and Westminster Hospital

Our Beta Cell Centre is a one stop shop that allows patients with diabetes to be treated under the same roof by a variety of diabetes specialists working in a team. The centre also supports The Kensington and Chelsea Community Diabetes Service that runs diabetes clinics across the local area and enables many patients to be treated away from hospital. We also run specialist clinics including insulin pumps, HIV, antenatal, psychiatry, hypertension and a dedicated adolescent clinic to help them come to terms with their illness and match their treatment to their adult life. We also manage diabetic emergencies and foot disease.

West Middlesex University Hospital

We provide sub-specialist diabetes clinics for adolescents and young adults, pregnant mothers and a dedicated foot ulcer clinic. We also provide inpatient support to other teams for the management of individuals with diabetes which may impact on their hospital treatment. We provide a very high level of care and education to try and prevent the vast array of complications associated with diabetes, particularly heart disease, stroke, blindness, amputation and kidney failure.

Our team 

At Chelsea and Westminster the team is led by four consultants in diabetes – Dr Michael Feher, Dr Daniel Morganstein, Dr Kevin Shotliff and Dr Alison Wren. At West Middlesex consultant endocrinologists Dr Khlaid Ahmed and Dr Rashmi Kaushal head up both the diabetes and endocrinology services.
