A London-based specialist diabetes practice is launching a new centre in Birmingham and aims to follow this up with more in the UK.
The new clinic in Edgbaston has benefited from a £200,000 investment by the London Diabetes Clinic, part of the London Medical family.
It will initially focus on diabetes and weight loss, but will also be able to draw on the comprehensive cohort of specialists based in London and nationally.
The clinic, said to be the only specialist diabetes centre in West Midlands, will be led by diabetes and endocrinology consultant Dr Parijat De.
London Diabetes Centre chief executive Tony Graff said: ‘Our first clinic outside London is a truly specialist centre providing diabetes patients in Birmingham and the wider Midlands with a service that provides access to cutting-edge knowledge, treatments and technology.’
