Urology Surgery

The Clinical Lead for urology was appointed with the endorsement of the British Association of Urological Surgeons. Peter Stewart-Sandeman (peter.stewart-sandeman@nhs.net) is the project manager for this workstream.

Clinical Lead: Simon Harrison

Simon was a Consultant Urologist at Pinderfields Hospital, Wakefield from 1992 to December 2016 where he worked in a large, sub-specialised District General Hospital Urology Department. Pursuing a special interest in Neurological Urology, Simon also developed a tertiary referral practice for patients with complex lower urinary tract dysfunction.

Simon has served on the Council of the British Association of Urological Surgeons (BAUS), been Chairman of the BAUS Section of Female, Neurological and Urodynamic Urology, and was Chairman of the NICE Guideline Development Panel for the guideline on Urinary Incontinence in Neurological Disease.

He undertook his medical training at Sidney Sussex College, Cambridge and the London Hospital Medical College before specialising in Urology. His subsequent research into the effects of bladder outflow obstruction on bladder function was rewarded with a Master of Surgery degree.

The Urology Review has already carried out over 70 trusts visits, with more planned. The National Report is due to be published in the autumn of 2017.
