National recognition for Newcastle Urology team

A team from Newcastle Urology has won a national award at the British Association of Urology Nurses (BAUN) conference for their innovative work on review of patients following bladder outlet surgery. Tracy Ord, Victoria Lavin and Chris Harding audited the nurse-led telephone review service which is carried out at three months post operatively by Functional Urology Nurse Specialist, Tracy Ord.

The results revealed significant cost savings to the Trust as a result of this scheme and if implemented nationally the NHS could potentially save £680,000 per year. Their work was recognised at BAUN and achieved best poster at the National Conference. If you would like any further information, please do not hesitate to contact the team on 0191 2448277.
