About the unit


The most common metabolic bone diseases are osteoporosis and Paget's disease, and each of the three consultants who have a major interest in these disorders holds a weekly clinic devoted to them.


Finding the department


The Bone Density Unit (BDU) is situated on level 3 behind Ultrasound.


From the Outpatients entrance: go through the outpatients reception area. Turn right onto the main corridor leading to the hospital concourse. When you reach the first set of stairs/lift on the left hand side, go up to the third floor. On the third floor landing, turn left onto the long corridor. The Bone Density Unit is located a short way along the corridor on the left hand side.
