Our achievements

The Urology Foundation has been supporting urology medical and scientific communities and their patients since 1995. Over the last eight years alone we have invested over £5.5 million into ground breaking research and training. This investment has significantly advanced our understanding of urology cancer and conditions and how to treat them. We have helped to completely transform the urology space and will continue to drive positive change and lead the fight against urology disease. One major achievement is that we pioneered the introduction of robotic urology surgery, enabling its safe and swift adoption by the NHS. This changed the face of urology cancer surgery.
