Society for Endocrinology - a world-leading authority on hormones

Interdepartmental peer review

Supporting clinical endocrinologists, this scheme provides an external assessment of clinical governance and service delivery.

Running since 2002, the scheme aims to improve services for endocrine patients. Each visit will focus on basic standards for endocrine care and service provision. The visit will facilitate an exchange of ideas and experiences, and allow areas of concern to be voiced.

Following Covid-19, there is an ongoing update of the options for peer review with the development of 2 different styles of review:

  1. Traditional model of peer review, with deep dive face-to-face review of the department and its connections within the hospital and delivery of highly specialised services.
  2. Networked review model. This involves an online questionnaire, online peer review of services, followed by a virtual networking event, linking hospitals providing similar care to share ideas and learn from each other, facilitated by a reviewer.


Applications from all endocrine centres are welcome. Please contact clinical@endocrinology.org for more information.

Register your interest in peer review

Interest in being a Peer reviewer vacancies: We invite experienced endocrine specialist nurses and consultants to become peer reviewers. Typically, it is beneficial for reviewers to have undergone the peer review process themselves, however with the expansion of the service, we are interested in support from experienced endocrinologists. We will also have a limited number of spaces for trainees to observe the peer review process.
