Urology is a specialty in medicine that deals with problems of the urinary system and the male reproductive system. The specialty offers diagnosis and treatment of conditions affecting the kidneys, the bladder, the ureter, the urethra, the prostate gland, the penis, and the testes.

Our medical team is led by five urology consultants specialising in both medical management (the diagnosis, investigation and treatment) as well as surgical management (benign and oncology). There are five clinical nurse specialists who run nurse led clinics, support the care of cancer patients, diagnostic work and the in-patient nursing service.

Patients booked into our diagnostic clinic may need to spend most of the morning or afternoon at the clinic (up to four hours) so please allow for this when making arrangements. More about the diagnostic clinic »

Making an appointment

Referrals to the urology team can be made via a GP or hospital doctor. We regret we cannot see patients without an appointment. Electronic referrals from a GP may be made through the 'choose and book' system. Tertiary referrals (from other hospital consultants) are also available.

Emergencies are seen in the accident and emergency department at the Royal Free Hospital.


The urology department clinics are located in the Kidney & Urology Centre on the third floor.
