We provide clinical care to children and young people with endocrine conditions and diabetes in both inpatient and outpatient settings. With one of the largest NICU and PICU in the territory, we provide endocrine support in many of the acute situations. Working closely with paediatric surgeons, neurosurgeons, and orthopaedic surgeons, we provide services to those in need of surgical intervention with underlying endocrine conditions. We also receive referral from our clinical genetics team for those syndromic conditions with endocrine problems.
We are one of the accredited training centres in Paediatric Endocrinology in Hong Kong. Apart from the clinical exposures to simple, intermediate, and complex endocrine conditions, we have transition diabetes clinic with adult endocrinologists, joint clinic with paediatric and adolescent gynaecologists, as well as multidisciplinary team clinic with colleagues involved in DSD care.
We have lots of research collaboration with adult endocrinologist at CUHK and other paediatric endocrine colleagues in the territory. Establishment of Hong Kong Children Diabetes Registry is one of the examples.
