Dr Thomas Galliford is a Consultant Physician and Endocrinologist at Watford General Hospital and Hemel Hempstead General Hospital, where he is part of a department committed to providing excellent services to patients with diabetes and endocrine conditions. In addition to his general medical commitments and routine diabetes and endocrine work, Dr Galliford is currently the lead for diabetes and endocrine disorders in pregnancy at Watford, and for the young adult diabetes service at Hemel Hempstead.
He has a strong interest in medical education and teaching, and is currently the undergraduate tutor at Watford and programme director for medicine for medical students from St George’s Hospital, Grenada. Dr Galliford undertook his undergraduate training at St Mary’s Hospital Medical School and Imperial College, graduating in 1998 having also completed an intercalated BSc (Hons). He undertook his postgraduate training primarily in London, which included a period of research in thyroid disease and metabolic bone disease at Hammersmith Hospital.
At Spire Bushey Hospital, Dr Galliford sees patients with endocrine disorders and diabetes. The facilities at Spire Bushey allow full appropriate investigation of these conditions.. Furthermore, his close links here with colleagues from Watford allows multi-disciplinary team-working to help direct further management as needed. Dr Galliford believes that treatment should be patient-centred and individualised, with good communication key to this. It is essential to discuss management plans and potential treatment options clearly. Such decisions should ultimately depend upon evidence-based guidance but also, importantly, upon patient choice.

I thoroughly enjoy my job and my speciality. Outside of work, spending time with my family is my priority. I have three children who keep me extremely busy. I keep fit by running regularly and am also a keen football fan. However, I will watch and play most sports given the slightest opportunity!Back to top
