The Urology Unit accepts elective and urgent referrals for urological problems in children.

Conditions treated include hypospadias, hydronephrosis, vesicoureteric reflux and neurogenic bladder dysfunction.  Currently all foreskin issues and testicular issues are seen by General Surgeons, rather than the Urologists.

Appointment locations are either in the Outpatient Department or the Department of General Surgery, depending on which consultant the patient is seeing.
