The GIRFT national report on urology was published in July 2018.
The clinical lead for urology was appointed with the endorsement of the British Association of Urological Surgeons.
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.
