Diabetes and Endocrinology

The Diabetes Team at the Hermitage Medical Clinic provides a high quality service with a focus on patient empowerment and self-management of diabetes through education, medical intervention and ongoing support.

Our aim is to provide information and motivation for people with diabetes. Structured education sessions focus on healthy diet choices, a gradual increase of physical activity and fitness and self monitoring to achieve personalised targets with the addition of appropriate medications when indicated.

Dr. John McDermott, Consultant Endocrinologist runs outpatient clinics with our Diabetes Nurse Specialist and Senior Dietician. You will need a referral from your GP to attend the Diabetes Service.
