Dr Mohgah Elsheikh
Thank you for visiting my website. I am an experienced consultant Endocrinologist with particular areas of expertise in the management of obesity, type 2 diabetes and polycystic ovary syndrome.
My NHS practice is in Gloucestershire Hospitals Foundation Trust where I lead the Integrated Community Diabetes service and am the medical consultant lead of the specialist weight management service. I also have a private practice at the Winfield Hospital.
I have had extensive training in Endocrinology and Diabetes at Kings College Hospital in London and the Oxford Centre for Diabetes, Endocrinology and Metabolism.
My first consultant post in 2001 was at the Royal Berkshire Hospital in Reading where I established the multidisciplinary obesity and bariatric service and expanded it to become a regional referral centre. I also developed the one-stop clinic for women with polycystic ovarian syndrome and led numerous innovative initiatives such as the development of the virtual thyroid clinic and the endocrine e-book.
In 2012, I moved to take a position at Imperial College London Diabetes Centre in Abu Dhabi where I was the Medical Lead for the multidisciplinary Bariatric and Metabolic Surgery Centre and established the Diabetes Remission service, the first of its kind in the UAE. I moved back to the UK in 2021.
I have authored several papers and textbook chapters including in the Oxford Handbook for Diabetes and Endocrinology, and regularly present at both national and international conferences. I am also a published author of Polycystic Ovary Syndrome (The Facts).
I was elected to the Fellowship of the Royal College of Physicians (London) in 2003. In addition, I am SCOPE certified by the World Obesity Federation and am a European Association for the Study of Obesity (EASO) National fellow.
I strive to provide a compassionate, personalised approach to the care of my patients and firmly believe in a holistic approach to patient care, fully involving the patient in developing a carefully thought-out management plan.
