Dr Rakesh Amin 


Dr Rakesh Amin has practiced as a Consultant Paediatric Endocrinologist since 2004.   

He is active in research with University College London (UCL) Great Ormond Street Institute of Child Health, is a member of various national and international organisations, and has been part of a number of national working groups.  

Thanks to the unique training culture within the NHS, my clinical experiences have been rich and varied. I have been lucky enough to work in several specialist centres across the country, and have seen huge numbers of children over the years with both common and extremely complex endocrine conditions. My experience includes patients from all cultures and backgrounds, and I'm proud to offer anyone I see the same level of service. As well as my clinical work, I am research-active, and I use this as an evidence base for my clinical practice.  

I see children and young people quickly and efficiently and only request investigations and start treatments if absolutely necessary. As a parent myself I understand the importance of being friendly and approachable, and clear, jargon-free explanations
