Dr Jose was appointed a Consultant Endocrinologist at University Hospitals of North Midlands (previously University Hospital of North Staffordshire) in 2012, having completed his higher specialist training in Endocrinology, Diabetes and General (Internal) Medicine from the West Midlands Deanery. During training, he took time out from the training programme to pursue research activities and obtain teaching qualifications.
Dr Jose was instrumental in streamlining and modernising the regional pituitary multi-disciplinary services as well as developing several new services. The lipid clinic, under his leadership, is now a fully functional service delivering newer therapies and is also part of a regional alliance to provide genetic testing. Working closely with genitourinary medicine team, he has played a pivotal role in developing a virtual metabolic clinic for patients with HIV disease.
