Urology

LivingCare’s Urology diagnostic service provides a patient-friendly, high quality and efficient assessment procedure for patients presenting with haematuria and recurrent urinary tract infections.

Our service, which is consultant-led working in conjunction with GPs with special interest, enables local GPs to refer directly to our unit for a range of diagnostic tests instead of referring to local hospitals, thus avoiding long waiting-times. The unit is run in accordance with NICE guidelines and Care Quality Commission standards and is subject to regular audit and review.
