Uro-Neurology Group
The department of Uro-Neurology was first set up in 1987 – so called because its aim was to take a neurological approach to bladder problems. Elsewhere an interest in neurological bladder problems had been lead by urologists so that most other specialist centres are called “Neuro-Urology Departments”. There are now a few other “Uro-Neurology” departments in the world and the subject of the neurological control of pelvic organ function is now recognised to be one of great clinical importance. Originally providing a service predominantly for bladder problems of neurological patients at The National Hospital, the referral base has gradually expanded and the department now receives referrals from gynaecologists, urologists, neurologists, and andrologists UK wide. In additional to the clinical service the department offers, research has been a major focus. Several important new therapies have become available in the last 10 years and research in the department has included the investigation of new treatments and their mechanism of action. Prof Fowler was joined by part time consultants Uro-gynaecolgist Ms Elneil in 2006 and last year by Urologist, Mr Rizwan Hamid. The department now has 3 nurses, two of whom are clinical nurse specialist continence advisors. There are 2 clinical fellows and we have had a succession of visiting research fellows from Europe.
