Professor John McKnight
Consultant Physician and Diabetologist
I am happy to see and assess a wide range of patients with general medical conditions. In the NHS I am involved in the assessment and management of patients presenting acutely to the Western General Hospital.
I lead the diabetes services in Lothian. I believe in developing a long term relationship with people who have a chronic condition such as diabetes to provide expert support and advice.
I was appointed as the Lead Clinical for diabetes in Scotland.
Some of the principal treatments carried out by Professor John McKnight at Spire include:
