Background Information 
Professional profile:

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.

Personal profile:

Dr Banerjee lives in St Albans with his wife and daughter. He enjoys his life in medicine and outside medicine as well. Photography, cooking, and gardening are his main hobbies – and he pursues them equally. Dr Banerjee is an avid sports fan – a retired footballer after a sports injury, but he plays cricket regularly. Having done the Great North Run before he was 40, he is now targeting the London Marathon before he is 50! Dr Banerjee loves music, mainly eastern semi-classical. Following his childhood desire to play the piano, he has started taking lessons and realised the importance of the brain learning to talk to both hands simultaneously!
