NHS Dumfries and Galloway are looking to appoint a dynamic Consultant Urologist. The successful candidate will join a team which comprises two Consultants (including this post), a Specialty Doctor, Nurse Consultant and a Cancer Nurse Specialist. A specialist interest which complements those of the existing Consultant will be encouraged.

The Department provides a core elective and emergency urology service to the Dumfries & Galloway region (population 148,000). Out-patient and cystoscopy services are provided at Dumfries and Galloway Royal Infirmary (DGRI) and the Galloway Community Hospital (GCH) in Stranraer. Elective surgery is performed at DGRI

Diagnostic services are supported by basic static urodynamics, flow studies and transrectal ultrasound and prostate biopsy. There are established andrology clinics (sexual dysfunction and infertility) led by the Nurse Consultant.

The Department is part of the “managed clinical network” for cancer services for the South East of Scotland. There is a teleconference link to weekly MDTs in Edinburgh.
