King’s College Hospital NHS Foundation Trust part of King's Health Partners Academic Health Sciences Centre (AHSC), is one of the UK’s largest and busiest teaching hospitals with a turnover of nearly £1 billion, 1.5 million patient contacts a year and more than 12,600 staff based across 5 main sites in South East London and Kent.
The Trust provides a full range of local hospital services across its different sites, and specialist services from King’s College Hospital (KCH) site in Camberwell and the Princess Royal University Hospital (PRUH) site in Bromley, Orpington Hospital, and some services at Beckenham Beacon and Queen Mary’s Sidcup.
The Trust is recognised internationally for its work in liver disease and transplantation, neurosciences, cardiac, haemato-oncology, fetal medicine, stroke, major trauma, and Emergency Department.
Urogynaecology was established at King’s College Hospital in 1979 and has grown from an urodynamic investigation service into a large centre serving the local population, as well as many tertiary referrals from all over the country. There are approximately 1,200 new referrals each year. Video urodynamic investigations are undertaken on the majority of patients (approximately 1,000 per annum). In addition, the U-CARE (Urodynamic Clinic for Assessment and Review of the Elderly) investigates a further 150 women and there are facilities of ambulatory urodynamics, of which an additional 150 are performed each year. Equipment is available for all commonly performed urodynamic investigations and ultrasound scanning.
The Unit is directed by Professor Linda Cardozo and there are three additional subspecialty trained consultants; Mr John Bidmead, Mr Dudley Robinson and Miss Sushma Srikrishna and a sub-specialty trainee. There are three Clinical Nurse Specialists, as well as a Healthcare Assistant and three Physiotherapists. In addition there are two clinical research fellows. There is a close link with the Departments of Urology and colorectal surgery. There are regular meetings with the Unit – weekly urodynamic reviews and research, monthly Journal Club and bi-monthly study reviews as well as monthly joint MDT’s with the other pelvic surgeons. The Urogynaecology department at King’s College Hospital is actively involved in teaching, training and clinical research
