Professor Michael Cummings

Consultant Endocrinologist


Specialises in

Appointed consultant in diabetes and endocrinology at Queen Alexandra Hospital, Portsmouth in 1996 and awarded Honorary Reader Status with Portsmouth University in 2000.

Having trained at St George's Hospital in Tooting, London, I undertook various training posts in Southern England before becoming a research fellow and then a lecturer in diabetes and endocrinology at St Thomas' Hospital, London. My main research interest was lipid abnormalities and vascular risk.

I have been involved in numerous activities attached to clinic work, including developing the local district's diabetes guidelines (DRIVE project) and introducing an electronic database system for patient records (DIABETA 3). I have developed major research projects looking at vascular functions in diabetes and sit on several national advisory and grant giving bodies related to diabetes.
