Launch of New Telephone Based Advice and Guidance Service

Mr Alan Doherty

We are very pleased to launch an innovative new service to provide wider access to our specialist prostate cancer advice and guidance.

Patients are now able to book telephone based advice and guidance with Alan Doherty, founding consultant urologist of the Birmingham Prostate Clinic. This new service may suit men who are seeking a prostate cancer second opinion or may wish to have a discussion about different treatment approaches and assessments.

Many of our patients travel considerable distances to come to the Birmingham Prostate Clinic and this service allows people to access our advice and guidance without initially travelling to our clinics which take place in the West Midlands.

Telephone based advice and guidance is not the same in scope as a consultation in clinic. But it may provide a helpful means for you to discuss options, assessments and treatment.

If this is something you are interested in, please contact us and our administration team will schedule a convenient time when Mr Doherty will call you. The administration team will go through all the necessary arrangements, including providing existing information such as scans and results in advance, which will support your telephone based advice and guidance.

After your telephone advice and guidance session, you will be sent a written summary of the discussion which took place. You can then choose whether to travel to BPC for our services or choose to proceed with different services elsewhere.
