Hormones and immune system

Allergy and immunology

We're the largest allergy and immunology centre outside of London, and one of only six units in the country providing a full service from diagnosis to treatment for children and adults. In 2014, we were named a world centre of excellence for asthma and immunology by the World Allergy Organisation.


We look after people with diabetes and other related illnesses. Our consultants are supported by a network of specialist dietitians, podiatrists and diabetes specialist nurses.


The endocrine system is a system of glands, each of which releases a type of hormone to help control and regulate the body. Our endocrinology service sees patients locally as well as providing specialist service to the wider region.

Lupus and vasculitis clinic

Our lupus clinic treats patients with systemic lupus erythematosus and other autoimmune and connective tissue disorders. We're also committed to carrying out research into the causes and treatment of lupus and other connective tissue diseases.
