I have been a consultant since 2001 and in my current post in Cardiff since 2004. I work full time for the NHS and am responsible for management of inpatients, outpatients and acute admissions on a day to day basis.
I offer a full range of blood tests and appropriate imaging for the disease areas that I specialise in.
I am the clinical lead for diabetes in Cardiff and help develop the strategic direction of the service. I have close links with management and primary care and liaise closely with these groups to maintain a high quality service.
I have an active role in the education and supervision of students and trainee doctors and sit on the Specialist Training Committee for Diabetes and Endocrinology.
Some of the principal treatments carried out by Dr Lindsay George at Spire include:
Endocrinology and diabetes
I am happy to see patients with general medical conditions and offer a full diabetes review service including complications check, medication review and risk factor management. I can also provide consultations and advice on pituitary, thyroid, bone, calcium, adrenal, testicular and weight disorders. I do not see women with fertility problems or polycystic ovary syndrome nor do I see children or teenagers with pubertal or developmental queries.
Spire Cardiff Hospital is only able to provide Covid-19 tests to patients undergoing surgery at our hospital. Covid-19 testing or antibody tests are not available as a standalone service.
