We would like to introduce you to our first consortium of private practising paediatric endocrinologists and metabolic bone consultants in the UK. The Manchester Children’s Endocrinology and Bone Consortium (MCEBoC) base their private practice at The Spire Hospital Manchester and NHS practice at the Royal Manchester Children’s Hospital (RMCH). They provide care for paediatric endocrine patients in Greater Manchester, Lancashire, Cheshire and Cumbria.
How can we help?
Our consultants will provide a comprehensive range of assessments, investigations and high-quality treatment for children and adolescent patients with problems related to growth, puberty, thyroid, adrenal, obesity and metabolic bone disorders.
Examples of conditions requiring endocrine input include:
Early or delayed puberty
Low blood sugars
Brittle bone disease (osteogenesis imperfecta)
Rare metabolic bone disease
Abnormal genital shape and size
Low Vitamin D
Adrenal problems and insufficiency
Thyroid disorders and goitre
Childhood rickets and osteomalacia
As a dynamic and functional consortium, we are in a unique position to offer patients rapid access to see paediatric endocrinologist or metabolic bone specialist of their choice. On our part, we will give a full and detailed explanation of complex diseases and provide suitable reassurance, advice and treatments to deliver endocrine care to the highest satisfaction.
