East Mercia Urology

Coming soon… 


East Mercia Urology: A partnership between United Lincolnshire Hospitals and Leicester’s Hospitals. 


East Mercia Urology brings together urology expertise from two large units into a single department. It will provide a population of over two million patients with access to specialist care including, but not limited to, robotic assisted surgery, lithotripsy and brachytherapy. Development of East Mercia Urology will be led by its Partnership Board accountable to both Trust Boards.

Our patients will see a single department with shared pathways of care across hospital sites in Leicestershire and Lincolnshire. The pathways will be designed so that all patients, wherever they live, can access the same choice of treatment options. Care will be delivered closer to home wherever this is possible and a choice of hospital will allow them to benefit from the shortest waiting times available.

We anticipate that recruitment, teaching and education and access to clinical trials will be strengthened by the larger numbers of patients and staff in a single department linked to the University of Leicester and De Montfort University. Joint appointments, consistent patient information and a single specialist Multi-Disciplinary Team will help cement the relationship and improve our service. 

While the main driver for the unit has come from complex cancer surgery, we will explore the other opportunities for joint working and shared care across a range of urology sub-specialities.
