The Trust’s Urology Service

The Department provides a core elective and emergency urology service at the Trust which is mostly based out of one site. Out-patient and cystoscopy services are also provided at a different site.

The department has significant support by General Surgical colleagues, and junior staff. The Department also has close links with the renal physicians who manage the Renal Dialysis Unit at the Trust.

The Department is part of the “managed clinical network” for cancer services for the South East of Scotland. As such, Oncology services are supported by the cancer facilities in Edinburgh. At present, emergency admissions are accepted via the General Surgical team and the local on-site Urology team will be consulted when a Urology issue confirmed. There is an SLA in-situ with another Trust so that emergencies can be transferred when out of hours.  

Location

Low house prices. Low crime rates. High standards of education. These are just 3 reasons why the location of this Trust is desirable. It also is near very beautiful towns and places of historical significance, including the home of a very famous Scottish poet. If you love nature and being out in the wild then it is also ideal, it has miles of coastline and lush forests – perfect if you like hiking, biking or swimming and fishing.
