Endocrinology (children)

What we do

Chelsea and Westminster Hospital’s endocrine service diagnoses and treats children and adolescents with growth and endocrine problems, relating to diseases associated with hormones.

With close links to the diabetes service, our consultants are experts in treating disorders of growth and puberty, as well as growth issues associated with chronic illnesses such as inflammatory bowel disease, cystic fibrosis, asthma and blood disorders.

We also run special clinics for children with obesity, families with lipid problems (cholesterol), children with Prader-Willi syndrome, blood disorders and follow up care after bone marrow transplant. Continuous care is available through to adulthood as a result of good links between the paediatric and adult endocrine services.

Our team

Dr Nicola Bridges is a consultant paediatric endocrinologist and clinical lead for our Paediatric Endocrinology service.
