‘Men’s Health’ – Urology & Prostate Cancer Talk – 13 May
07 May 2014

On Tuesday 13th May (2pm), The Pennine Acute Hospitals NHS Trust will be hosting a free talk about urological conditions and prostate cancer.

The event is part of the Trust’s series of Medicine for Members’ events and will be held by Mr Raveendra Surange, Consultant Urologist and Annette German, Urology Specialist Nurse and Advanced Practitioner, at Rochdale Infirmary education centre. 

The talk is for anyone wanting to know more about urology services provided by the Trust, PSA testing, blood in urine and stones, and prostate cancer.

Prostate cancer is the most common cancer in men in the UK. Over 40,000 men are diagnosed with it every year and over 250,000 men are currently living with the disease.

Last year approximately 940 patients were diagnosed with a urological cancer within the Trust. The department encourages early investigation and detection in order to reach early diagnosis and provide better outcomes. Therefore, this event provides an opportunity to learn more about common urological conditions, some of which could indicate a cancer.

Consultant Urologist and Clinical Director Mr Arun Jain said: “This event will provide members and anyone interested in this area of health with the opportunity to learn more about developments with urology services at the Trust and an understanding of the common conditions treated.”

The talk will be held on Tuesday 13th May, 2.00 pm – 3.00 pm in room D3, Level D, Top Floor at the Education Centre, Rochdale Infirmary.   The event is free and open to the public, staff and the Pennine Acute Trust’s Foundation Trust members.

‘Medicine for Members’ events are free and are held regularly at our four hospital sites, to give the public, staff and the Pennine Acute Trust’s Foundation Trust members the opportunity to learn more about the services at PAHNT.   So far, more than 11,200 people have signed up to become FT members.
