UrologyHub provides a single point of referral for men who are symptomatic or concerned and require a consultation or diagnostic assessment for problems related to the urinary tract or male reproductive system. Our aim is to provide patients with rapid access to a urologist with an appropriate specialism together with any required diagnostic investigations on the same day. Further investigations and treatment will be seamlessly delivered through pre-existing pathways.
Our clinics are located in our state-of-the-art specialist outpatient centres with access to a full multidisciplinary team for a fast and professional urology service. As the service is provided under GenesisCare, there is a clear and comprehensive pathway for patients with a cancer diagnosis who choose private treatment.

Rapid access clinics
UrologyHub is a consultant-led service providing a single point of referral for the diagnostic assessment of problems related to the urinary tract or male reproductive system.
Any symptomatic or concerned male patient can see a consultant in a specialist urology clinic setting and undergo any necessary diagnostic assessments during the same appointment, or soon after. Patients can be referred by their GP to a urologist with the appropriate specialism or, if they choose to self-refer, they will be triaged by a urology nurse and referred to an appropriate urologist.
We provide all standard tests including blood tests, cytology, urinalysis and urodynamics (a full list of services is available on request). These will normally be carried out on the same day as the initial consultation appointment and we aim to discuss results or feed back to the patient on the same day – before they leave the clinic.
Our aim is to provide a fast diagnosis and expert opinion, together with any further investigative or treatment pathway. Patients are supported by a multidisciplinary team during their initial consultation and any further appointments to ensure a smooth transition from investigation to treatment, if needed.
