Welcome to PCUS

Primary Care Urology Society (PCUS) is a forum for healthcare professionals working in primary and community care to discuss and debate practical and topical management issues in urology.

PCUS is concerned with improving the care of patients with benign and malignant urological conditions. The Society provides educational and networking programmes to support healthcare professionals both in primary and community care as well as those undertaking GPSI roles.

› 2017 NOVEMBER STUDY DAY

Thank you to everyone who joined us for the 2017 Study Day. Delivered by primary care for primary care the last PCUS meeting was hugely well-received by the participants. The findings [click here] received early in 2017 from our ongoing survey were used to inform some of the programme for the day which was highly interactive involving plenary and rotating breakout sessions. Presentations from the sessions can be viewed [here].

97% of participants rated the overall educational value of the meeting as excellent with 100% saying the day met with their expectations. In terms of rating the meeting more specifically, 94% said it was an ideal forum for learning new information, 83% said it was valuable for sharing best practice and over 50% found it really helpful for networking.

Of most importance was that 92% felt that the meeting would help to significantly improve their clinical practice in the future. PCUS is committed to delivering valued education that can help make a positive difference to delivering primary care.

Please, if you haven't already done so, complete the survey which is ongoing.

The date and location of the 2018 Study Day will be released very shortly.

› PCUS 2017 Survey Results

Throughout 2017 PCUS has been running a survey to understand from professionals working in primary care exactly what they feel are their educational needs around urological conditions. The plan is also for this feedback to help shape future activities of the PCUS.

To date we've had responses from 52 individuals, most (67%) of whom are practising GPs. Others were practice nurses, community urology nurses and a handful of consultants.

We're pleased to share the findings to date, but please, if you haven't already done so, feel free to complete the survey which will be ongoing.
