What is Urology?
Urology is the branch of medicine that looks at diseases of the urinary system in females and the genitourinary system (urinary system plus genital organs) in males. The urinary system is made up of the:
  • kidneys (where urine is formed from material filtered out of the blood)
  • ureters (tubes that carry urine from the kidneys to the bladder)
  • bladder (a balloon-like organ that stores urine)
  • sphincter muscles (muscles around the opening of the bladder into the urethra)
  • urethra (the tube that carries urine to the outside of your body).

The male genital organs include the penis, scrotum and prostate gland. The prostate is a walnut-sized gland located between the bladder and the penis and in front of the rectum. The urethra passes through the centre of the prostate. A doctor who specialises in disorders of the urinary system and also the male reproductive system is known as an urologist. A doctor who specialises in kidneys and their function is called a nephrologist.

Referral Expectations

GP or specialist referral is preferred, however we do also welcome direct enquiries.

Please bring any documentation you may have, for instance:

  • a referral letter from your GP
  • any scans, x-rays, or blood results
  • a list of your current medications and dosages.

N.B. If you are self referred then clearly you won't have a GP's letter, however, any information you are able to provide that will assist in a diagnosis will be most helpful.

If this is your first consultation you won't be required to fast, although if you have been asked to have a flow-test on arrival, then arriving with a full bladder is most helpful.
