  • Improve the urological treatment and care of patients in Bristol and the South West
  • Provide a high standard of undergraduate and postgraduate teaching
  • Support and develop urological research, with particular emphasis on urological cancers (of the prostate, bladder, kidney and testes) and the problems of urinary incontinence
