Bermuda Hospitals Board announces new endocrinologist

Tuesday 21 May 2019: Bermuda Hospitals Board (BHB) announces the appointment of Andrew Jamieson, MRCP(UK) PhD, as a consultant endocrinologist on an initial two-year contract. Dr Jamieson started on 4 May, filling the vacancy left in 2018 with the departure of Annabel Fountain, MD.

Dr Jamieson, from Paisley, Scotland, received his degree in medicine from the University of Glasgow, finishing top of his class with the title Most Distinguished Graduate in Medicine. He underwent training in internal medicine in London and Glasgow and obtained the MRCP(UK). He was awarded his PhD after completing a Medical Research Council training programme in Glasgow and Cornell University in New York.

Dr Jamieson completed his specialist training in endocrinology in Glasgow and worked as a consultant endocrinologist and physician in NHS Scotland for 17 years before taking up a post, in 2016, as deputy medical director of the Valiant Clinic in Dubai, United Arab Emirates. At the Valiant Clinic, Dr Jamieson provided a combination of management, training and clinical practice in endocrinology.

Dr Jamieson has published widely on clinical aspects of diabetes, endocrinology and osteoporosis.

BHB Chief of Staff Michael Richmond, MD, said: “We are fortunate to have Dr Jamieson join the BHB team. His knowledge and expertise in diabetes and his experience in managing the disease in Dubai, a high diabetes prevalence area, will benefit entire the Bermuda community.”

Dr Jamieson said: “I am looking forward to serving the community and working to improve health outcomes for diabetics in this beautiful island.”
