Particular service priorities are prostate cancer diagnostics, functional and paediatric urology. The job can be tailored depending on the interests and expertise of an excellent candidate.
A role in the Prostate cancer service would involve working closely with the rest of the team not only in diagnostics but also, we anticipate, as a trial centre for the PART study, including within that trial the delivery of HIFU and electroporation as focal treatment for prostate cancer.Main duties of the job
The post offered is for a Consultant Urological Surgeon with 10 programmed activities. These sessions will be wherever the Trust delivers its services but the majority of the work will be at Wexham Park and Heatherwood Hospital.

The successful applicant will be expected to and indeed encouraged to develop his/her sub-specialist interest with opportunities in most benign fields including paediatric and functional urology.
