Urology

The urology services at Chelsea and Westminster NHS Foundation Trust are carried out on two sites; the Chelsea and Westminster site and the West Middlesex University Hospital site.

What we do

The urology services at Chelsea and Westminster NHS Foundation Trust are carried out on two sites—Chelsea and Westminster Hospital and West Middlesex University Hospital. Both sites offer a full range of assessment, treatment and follow-up for a wide range of urological problems and procedures. The teams on both sites have extensive experience in the treatment of benign and malignant urological conditions.

By using the latest diagnostic and treatment technologies, the treatment we provide is as a state-of-the-art treatment which is minimally invasive. Urology works closely with other specialties such as general surgery, gynaecology, obstetrics, dermatology, radiology and infertility service teams, as well as medical and clinical oncology to deliver a holistic, patient-focused service. Both sites provide excellent opportunities for training, research, and innovation with regular academic activities..
