urology

Urology is the field of medicine that is associated with the diseases and disorders of the male and female urinary tract. Urologists are doctors who specialize in the treatment of diseases and conditions affecting the urinary system, including the bladder, kidney, ureter, urethra, and adrenal glands. In men, they treat all ailments concerning the penis, prostate, epididymis, seminal vesicles, and the testes.

The following patients are excluded from the service:

  • Patients requiring an appointment under the two week wait rules.  All 2ww referrals will be dealt with by the local Trust.
  • Patients with routine continence problems, these patients should be seen by the Community Bladder and Bowel service (see the Community Service Specification) – Please use the BNSSG Bladder & Bowel Referral form and email to: BRCH.ContinenceService@nhs.net
  • Patients requiring a general anaesthetic for flexi cystoscopy.
  • Patients unable to transfer themselves on and off a bed without assistance.  Patients may use their own portable hoist if able to do so with assistance from their own carer. Although certain procedures may not be suitable for some patients with mobility problems, these would be referred on to Secondary Care.
  • Re-inserting Catheters
  • Diagnosed Stones
  • Paediatric referrals (under 18 years of age)
