Patient support groups
All the investigation protocols and accompanying patient information sheets have been adapted from those in use at the Norfolk and Norwich University Hospitals Foundation Trust. These were developed in collaboration with Sondra Gorick, senior endocrine specialist nurse, and all the medical and nursing staff of the endocrinology department.
These protocols have been modified in various ways over years of clinical experience and with valuable patient feedback. However, the original sources are listed below:
