The Endocrine Hypertension Service was established in July 2017 and operates on Thursday mornings and alternate Wednesday mornings in the Department of Endocrinology, on Level 3, Block E, Monash Medical Centre.

This clinic has been established to facilitate the diagnosis and management of endocrine causes of hypertension, with a particular focus on primary aldosteronism.

We have the capacity to review patients frequently for medication adjustments and blood pressure monitoring during the diagnostic process.

For patients who are found to have aldosterone producing adenomas, we can facilitate medical stabilisation prior to surgery.

Referrals can be faxed to Ms Elise Forbes (dedicated clinic nurse) on (03) 9594-3558.
