Welcome to the Trafford Diabetes and Endocrine page
Trafford diabetes centre is located at Trafford Hospital. This is part of the WTWA group of the Manchester University Hospital. This is a small peripheral unit of the larger unit based at Wythenshawe hospital and is supported by the Wythenshawe team. We run clinics from Trafford Hospital (Urmston), Altrincham Hospital ( Altrincham), Telephone clinics and evening clinics (5PM to 8 PM). The main services are for those with Type 1 Diabetes, Type 2 Diabetes and weight issues, Diabetic kidney disease, Pump and Young person clinics. We do not have antenatal services on site.
