Dr Banerjee graduated in Calcutta, India, in 1992 and came to UK for higher training. Within two years he successfully cleared his professional exams and started his specialty training in the Cambridge rotation. During his training years, he did his research for an MD on hormonal effects of weight loss and exercise.
He started his Consultant job at the Luton & Dunstable Hospital in November 2002. He went to India for one year between 2008-2009 and returned to his job, having worked within the healthcare services in India. He is currently involved in junior doctor training, working towards preparing the ‘doctors of the future’. He is a regular examiner for Final MB and for MRCP exams.
Dr Banerjee has continued to develop the endocrine service at his NHS hospital. He has also been active in setting up a Diabetes Foot Care and Adolescent Endocrine service. His clinical work is of a very high standard and he is loved and respected by patients and colleagues. He has presented locally and nationally in meetings and is active in research aspects of endocrinology.
Dr Banerjee provides a specialist opinion on all endocrine problems. He finds it rewarding to be able to help patients with non-specific symptoms, unexplained tiredness, uncontrolled hypertension, and electrolyte imbalances – areas that are not commonly dealt with. His liaison work with dietetics helps him to treat weight disorders and diabetes.
