Christopher Baynes has extensive experience in many aspects of diabetes and endocrinology, having trained predominantly in the Imperial/St Mary’s hospital group including a period of time spent as a Welcome Trust-funded research fellow.  His NHS practice has included perioperative, paediatric and antenatal diabetes/endocrine care and both general and reproductive endocrinology. 

He created and developed an outpatient endocrine service at Chase Farm Hospital in 1996, providing services for patients with a wide range of endocrine conditions, with the subsequent creation of a multidisciplinary thyroid cancer clinic and antenatal endocrine services.

The service has expanded significantly over the years and continues to provide specialist clinical endocrinology services for the local population, inpatient and day unit investigation and endocrinology training.

His current main areas of interest are thyroid, adrenal and pituitary. He is no longer providing general diabetes services as these are best provided in a multidisciplinary setting within the NHS services.
