Short stature or obesity

To refer for short stature or obesity, please use the NHS e-Referral Service (e-RS) using one of the following forms:


We do not offer an obesity service. We will accept children with an underlying endocrine cause for their obesity such as genetic cause, suspected Cushing’s syndrome or early onset obesity less than 5 year old (consider referring to general paediatric opinion first if unsure), which is likely to be due to an underlying genetic cause.
