The Urology department deals with both male and female urinary and genital problems which might require medical or surgical treatment.
We run specialist clinics for lower urinary tract symptoms, kidney stones, prostate assessment, haematuria (blood in the urine), urodynamics, andrology and children. Community based clinics are also held in Ledbury, Ross on Wye, Leominster, Llandrindod Wells and Brecon.
Wye Valley NHS Trust is part of the Three Counties Cancer Network and all patients are discussed at a Multidisciplinary Team meeting with Pathology, Radiology and Oncology colleagues.
