Dr Johnson is a senior Consultant in Endocrinlogy and Diabetes and has been practising at Southmead Hospital, North Bristol NHS Trust since 1996. He has a busy clinical life as a specialist in Endocrinology and Diabetes in Southmead where he cares for people with a wide range of problems including pituitary, adrenal, thyroid and parathyroid disease, as well as diabetes (both Type 1 and Type 2) and obesity. He leads a joint parathyroid, thyroid and endocrine clinic at Southmead Hospital with Mr Justin Morgan, the endocrine surgeon. He also has a specialist interest in the care of women with thyroid and endocrine disorders and diabetes pre, during and post pregnancy and run the antenatal medical clinic at Southmead Hospital. 

Dr Johnson is totally committed to delivering personalised and high quality care to all his patients, ensuring they fully understand their condition and what treatment (or self-management) will achieve. He comprehensively informs patients about their condition, about the treatment or support options available, and about the benefits and risks of each option. Together we arrive at a treatment and management plan based on a mutual understanding of this information.
