I am a Consultant in Diabetes and Endocrinology at Royal Glamorgan Hospital, Llantrisant, Wales and an honorary Consultant Endocrinologist at University Hospital of Wales, Cardiff. In April 2018, I was conferred a visiting professorship by University of South Wales (USW).

Dr Matthew Wilkinson, FRCP Edin

Dr Matthew Wilkinson was born and educated in Bishop Auckland but much of his schooling was at home because he suffered from osteomyelitis before there was a cure.   He went to Cambridge University at seventeen , developing a life-long love of the place and followed this with the clinical years at St Bartholomews. Medicine became his abiding passion.  After his house jobs he worked in Carshalton and then Hammersmith Hospitals before moving to San Francisco on a Fulbright Scholarship.  He returned to Hammersmith before working in Charing Cross and the Royal Northern Hospitals.
