Urology pathways have been redesigned by the Sustainability and Transformation Partnership (STP) NCL Urology workstream and ratified by primary and secondary care clinicians, as well as the Medicines Management Team. All routine and urgent consultant-led first outpatient appointment referrals are to be sent via e-RS.
Advice and guidance is available and encouraged.
The Pan London Suspected Cancer Referral Guide for Urology is available online.
Vasectomies are routinely funded when delivered under local anaesthesia and/or deep sedation. If a vasectomy is required under general anaesthesia then an Evidence Based Interventions and Clinical Standards (EBICS) Policy application must be completed for the patient. Whittington Health will provide vasectomies that are in line with NCL policy. For information on the application please visit your borough EBICS page.
