Professor Richard Hindley, Clinical Advisor for Prostate Cancer

Consultant Urologist at Hampshire Hospitals. Visiting Professor at the department of Health & Wellbeing at the University of Winchester

The evidence to support the use of routine PSA testing is stronger than ever. PSACheck enables men to have the test performed and provides all the necessary support and guidance should the test flag anything of concern. An early PSA test as a ‘marker in the sand’ is very useful and can be used for future comparison and improves hugely the utility of this simple and inexpensive test.

Richard Hindley is a Consultant Urologist at Hampshire Hospitals and was appointed in 2014. In 2017 he was awarded a visiting Professor position working with the Department of Health and Wellbeing at the University of Winchester. This was in recognition of his growing prostate research portfolio which includes collaborating with other units including UCLH and the University of Oxford. He was privileged to be involved with the PROMIS and PRECISION trials, which have changed forever the diagnostic pathway for men with suspected prostate cancer. He has publications in both the Lancet at the NEJM. His interests relate not only to prostate cancer diagnostics but also focal therapy as a treatment option for men with intermediate risk prostate cancer, as well as minimally invasive treatments for benign prostatic obstruction and men’s health issues in general. He has been central to the successful introduction of Rezum water vapour therapy to the UK, which has recently been endorsed by the National Institute of Clinical Excellence.
