The Department is staffed by one Professor, two Lecturers and 13 NHS Consultants in adult urology, each with his own sub-specialist areas of interest. Together, the Consultant staff now provide a full range of urological expertise. Since 1 April 2004, five of the NHS Consultants have also provided daytime urological cover for Hinchingbrooke Hospital on a rota basis. We have now expanded this to allow seven days of cover at Hinchingbrooke Hospital.
Urological trainees within the Department are part of the East Anglian training program. Trainees also spend at least a year in each of the other regional units (Norfolk & Norwich University, Edith Cavell, Ipswich, Bedford, West Suffolk and Luton & Dunstable Hospitals) in rotation. Application for these posts is by open competition and vacancies are advertised in the standard medical journals (to view vacancies on-line, visit the British Medical Journal). Prospective applicants should contact Professor David Neal or Mr Nimish Shah for further information.
