Meet Our Consultants
Individually, our diabetes specialists are some of the most highly respected in their field of medicine. But what really sets us apart is the way our team works together for the benefit of your health and wellbeing. Collectively, they offer a breadth and depth of diabetes expertise that is quite simply unmatched anywhere in the UK in a private clinic.
I believe in the NHS and so why would I use a private provider?
Here at The London Diabetes Centre, we believe that working in conjunction with your NHS care team we can help supplement your NHS care. With your agreement, we will keep your NHS care team including your NHS GP fully informed of the clinical care plan you are following.
We may even discuss the care plan in advance with your NHS care team to make sure that they agree with it, particularly with Paediatric diabetes. Although you (or your health insurance provider if you have one) will need to pay for the services, we work hard to keep prices reasonable and the thousands of patients we have seen before tell us that we provide real value for money.
