CUH service for women is top in UK

A surgical speciality unit within women’s services at Cambridge University Hospitals (CUH) has been recognised as the best in the UK.

The urogynaecology unit was awarded the highest accreditation score ever recorded after an external review by the prestigious British Society of Urogynaecology. 

The review, which is valuable information for patients and commissioners, looked at the quality of the service and included assessment of surgical standards, outcomes and compliance with national audits.

CUH’s urogynaecology unit operates at the forefront of clinical practice and provides a comprehensive care package for the management of pelvic floor disorders, including those that are complex.

The three main types of pelvic floor disorders are lack of bladder control, a lack of bowel control, or pelvic organ prolapse, a condition relating to the uterus, bladder and bowel.

The unit is nationally recognised for its research and provides one of the best training programmes in the country for the next generation of urogynaecologists.

Dr Mark Slack, consultant urogynaecologist who heads the unit with Dr Ashish Pradhan, said: “We are very proud to get the highest ever accreditation score. It is testament to the quality of our team, from the junior doctors, specialist nurses, clinic and ward nurses and everyone involved in the care of our patients. 

“This is an independent stamp of approval of the quality of care the unit provides and the outcomes it gets for our patients.”
