Some of the principal treatments carried out by Dr Thomas Galliford at Spire include:
I am a Consultant Physician and Endocrinologist at Watford General Hospital and Hemel Hempstead General Hospital. I am part of a department committed to providing excellent services to patients with diabetes and endocrine conditions. In addition to my general medical commitments and routine diabetes and endocrine work, I am currently the lead for diabetes and endocrine disorders in pregnancy at Watford, and for the young adult diabetes service at Hemel Hempstead.
I have a strong interest in medical education and teaching, and am currently the undergraduate tutor at Watford and programme director for medicine for medical students from St George’s Hospital, Grenada. I undertook my undergraduate training at St Mary’s Hospital Medical School and Imperial College, graduating in 1998 having also completed an intercalated BSc (Hons). I undertook my 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, I see patients with endocrine disorders and diabetes. The facilities at Spire Bushey allow full appropriate investigation of these conditions. Furthermore, my close links here with colleagues from Watford allow multi-disciplinary team-working to help direct further management as needed.
I believe 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
