Haematuria Clinics

Overview

You will visit this clinic when blood has been found in your urine. You may have discovered this blood yourself, or it may have been found when your urine has been tested.

There are a variety of possible causes, and many patients will have no definite cause identified. Please bring a urine sample with you.

Haematuria clinics are carried out by a Specialist Nurse in the Richmond Urology Unit at Leigh Infirmary.
