We are committed to delivering the highest quality of medical care to our patients. The aims of the NUG partnership are to foster clinical excellence through subspecialisation and cooperation between consultants.
Studies have shown the benefits of subspecialisation, where surgeons develop expertise in a smaller number of treatment areas. The Royal College of Surgeons have stated:
“The increasing scope and complexity of medical practice has naturally led to increasing specialisation amongst its practitioners . . . sub-specialisation has been shown to improve the outcomes of treatment.”
Urology at Nottingham City Hospital has become increasingly subspecialised over recent years. In order to optimise the quality of care we deliver for our patients, each consultant has focussed on an area of urological practise to improve the level of expertise that we can offer.
By working in partnership we are able to ensure that all patients receive the highest quality of care from a consultant who has the correct training and expertise for their condition.
We are the only private urology service in Nottingham that can offer expert advice from consultants with subspecialist practices in all aspects of urology.
Continuity of care
If your surgeon is out of town or on holiday, who will be around to sort out any difficulties you might have? Unlike some surgeons who choose to work alone, NUG can ensure that a consultant will always be available to help if you have a problem. That's why working as a team means that someone will always be available if you need them.
