An estimated 1 in 2 of us will be diagnosed with a urological condition at some stage in our lives. This includes prostate, bladder, kidney and male reproductive cancers and non-malignant conditions including incontinence, urinary tract infections (UTIs), erectile dysfunction and kidney stones.

Friday 1st September will see the launch of Urology Awareness Month 2023. This important campaign is an opportunity to bring together the urology community – researchers, urologists, nurses and allied healthcare professionals, influencers and decision makers, patients and their families and those with an interest in urological conditions – to raise awareness of urological conditions.

Throughout the Month a range of activities will be taking place. There are also opportunities to get involved.

Here are a few……

  • Health information stands and events will be taking place across the UK. If you would like to hold your own event please get in touch. We have posters, leaflets and other resources.
  • Why not hold a talk or “health and well-being” session in your workplace? Get in touch if you would like more information on how to do this or would like a speaker.
  • Make September the month you appoint a Urology Ambassador to help raise awareness of urological conditions.
  • Add our dedicated Urology Awareness Month e-banner to your email sign off.
  • Hold a fundraising event or sign up to one of our events (why not sign up in teams with friends and make it competitive!)
  • Take to social media – post a message or a short video of support.
  • Like, retweet, follow and comment our social media messages, infographics and stats.
