The latest from the Black Country 

Pete's Three Peaks

L77C0225 00075827aTo celebrate his 50th birthday, Nuffield Health Wolverhampton Consultant Urological Surgeon Mr Peter Cooke will be undertaking the UK Three Peaks Challenge, scaling a total height of over 3000 metres in mid June, to raise £5000 for The Urology Foundation charity.

Over three consecutive days, from 11–13 June, Mr Cooke and 12 colleagues will take on the highest peaks in Scotland, England and Wales to make a difference to those affected by urology disease in the UK. The Wolverhampton Prostate Cancer Support Group has already generously pledged £1000 and, with a huge number of individual donations, Peter Cooke is just £700 away from his individual fundraising target. The whole team hopes to raise in excess of £20,000.

The Urology Foundation is committed to transforming the lives of people with urological conditions, through ground-breaking research, training and education. Working with researchers, urology and health care professionals, they are dedicated to improving the nation’s urology care to ensure that fewer lives will be devastated.

A specialist urology surgeon, Mr Cooke works at the Royal Wolverhampton NHS Trust and also sees patients with Nuffield Health in his private practice Midlands Urology. In his private practice Mr Cooke offers a comprehensive diagnostic service, with rapid access to specialist cancer care. At Nuffield Health Wolverhampton Hospital he undertakes prostate cancer testing, surgery for scrotal lumps and bumps, performs vasectomy and, where medically required, circumcision. In his combined NHS and private practice, he is amongst the highest volume urological surgeons in the UK, having undertaken over 1000 major cases for prostate, kidney and bladder cancer.

For his charity event the urology specialist is being supported to reach his target by both private and NHS patients and by the Nuffield Health Wolverhampton Hospital itself. Peter Cooke commented, “I have been inspired by the work that The Urology Foundation do by supporting people like me and my team at the Royal Wolverhampton NHS Trust. We introduced robotic surgery to the Midlands in 2011 and 5 years on have treated over 500 people with prostate, bladder and kidney cancer. The rapid success of our robotic programme is thanks to The Urology Foundation and the support they gave us with specialist training in Paris, and the opportunity to visit one of the world's leading centres in Nashville, USA.”
