Have your say

Health experts, professors and students from across the world have been gathering in Sheffield to learn about the progress of a project which could lead to new treatments for bladder illnesses.

Sheffield Teaching Hospitals has led an EU-funded scheme to train urology scientists, in the hope of developing therapies to treat overactive bladder symptoms.

More than 30 clinicians and researchers met this week at The Holiday Inn Royal Victoria to celebrate the project’s achievements so far. These include a new device, similar to a TENS machine, which controls symptoms and reduces hospital visits.

Prof Chris Chapple, consultant urological surgeon, said: “This event is a great opportunity to reflect on the achievements of the project so far.”
