During the consultation you will be asked questions about your symptoms and the Urologist will discuss and advise you about what can be done to support you. This may include further examinations and treatments that you may require to complete the consultation process.
If you require another test or procedure as part of your treatment, this will be organised by the nursing and administration team for you. Instructions and details of the test and when to expect an appointment will be discussed with you at the time. You will also have the chance to ask questions.
The consultation will last approximately 20 minutes. You may be asked to undress so that the doctor can examine you appropriately. You will be allowed to do this in private behind a screen to respect your privacy and dignity. You will also be asked if you would like a chaperone to be with you throughout your examination. After the examination you will be allowed time to dress in private before further discussion is held about your further treatment or any questions you may have.
If the urologist advises you that further tests are necessary e.g. Ultrasound scan, MRI or X-ray, the results of these will be discussed with you at a follow up outpatient appointment. If you require tests such as flexible Cystoscopy, (a look inside the bladder) or bladder function tests, the results of these will be discussed with you at the time of the test.
