Urology

Here at WWL, we offer an extensive range of Urology Services provided by highly skilled specialists with a variety of sub-specialties.

The Urology Department for WWL is located in the Richmond Urology Unit, on the first floor of the Hanover Diagnostic and Treatment centre, which has recently seen a £6.8 million refurbishment. The Urology department opened in 2013 and houses most new patient clinics, all of our invasive diagnostic tests and the majority of our nurse-led services.
Our philosophy is to provide clinics with the patients in mind, and allow most necessary investigations to be undertaken during your first visit. Where complex procedures are required, some patients are referred to specialist units in Manchester or Liverpool.

We really value feedback from patients, carers or relatives relating to their experience with us- please ask reception for a comment card before you leave.
