Newcastle RVI Endocrine Laboratory

Royal Victoria Infirmary (RVI)

The Newcastle SAS laboratory has existed since the foundation of the SAS in 1973 to meet both Health Service and academic needs within endocrinology. Consequently it offers an extensive menu of SAS designated assays. Its major focus concerns the investigation of thyroid, pituitary and adrenal disease. The SAS designated assays performed are: thyroglobulin, TBII, IGF-I, ACTH, PTH, 25(OH) cholecalciferol and calcitonin. In addition, non-SAS specialist endocrine assays are also undertaken in the laboratory. The SAS diagnostic service includes an advisory function performed and co-ordinated by the director and deputy director, supported by Clinical Associates who are expert endocrinologists and frequent users of the service themselves. An active research and development programme is in operation involving collaboration with Health Service users and Medical School academic staff.
