New Urology Minor Surgery Service in Gloucestershire

GP Care continues to look at ways that we can help alleviate pressures on secondary care so we are very pleased to announce that as part of our Community Urology Service across Gloucestershire, we will now also be delivering a Urology Minor Surgery service from Stroud Hospital.  Our first clinic will be held in March 2019.

The service will provide a number of day case surgical procedures including circumcision, frenuloplasty and simple scrotal surgery by Consultant Urologist, Mr Biral Patel.  GP Care has recruited a pre-op assessment nurse who will support Mr Patel in this service.

Patients will benefit from being seen in a more relaxed community hospital setting and can be reassured that we are fully registered with the CQC to undertake surgical procedures.

If you have any queries or feedback about the Community Urology Service, please do not hesitate to contact the Service Lead, Heidi Loader, on 0333 332 2102 or email
