The Birmingham Thyroid Clinic

Welcome to The Birmingham Thyroid Clinic. The clinic is run by ENT and Head and Neck Consultant, Mr John Watkinson, who has developed a special interest in thyroid disease and currently has one of the largest thyroid practices in the UK and contributes to an active thyroid research programme.

Mr Watkinson also works closely with a team of Endocrinologists to offer a multidisciplinary approach to thyroid conditions and thyroid dysfunction.

This experience means the clinic can offer you the best solution to your problem tailored to your individual needs. You can be assured that you are in expert hands.

Thyroid hormones regulate our body's metabolism and influence virtually every organ system in the body. They tell organs how fast or slow they should work. Thyroid hormones also regulate the body's consumption of oxygen and production of heat. Thyroid problems, such as an overactive or underactive thyroid, can severely affect metabolism.

The Birmingham Thyroid Clinic offers expertise in all aspects of thyroid conditions. At your first appointment the Consultant, Mr Watkinson, will undertake a full clinical assessment and arrange the most appropriate investigations. He may then recommend follow-up treatment or an alternative consultant if required.
