    About

    Richard Hindley is a consultant urologist focused on patient care. He is dedicated to providing all patients with expert advice and the very highest quality of clinical care. He is able to treat the whole range of urological conditions using the latest proven techniques and the most up-to-date technology to provide timely and low-risk care.

    He practices privately at HCA Princess Grace Hospital, London, alongside some of the leading consultants in the field and additionally at BMI The Hampshire Clinic and The Candover Clinic, Basingstoke. He also has clinics to see NHS patients at Basingstoke Hospital. He receives patient referrals from all over the England and overseas.

    Professor Hindley is a Visiting Professor at the University of Winchester and was awarded this position in 2017. He has made some impressive contributions to research into prostate cancer, and run clinical trials designed to further improve treatments and advances in patient care. He is dedicated to improving the diagnostic pathway for patients with prostate cancer and he furthermore researches some of the mechanisms that may cause the disease. Not only this, he has also performed over 500 transperineal prostate biopsies. Richard was heavily involved in the PROMIS trials which have shown considerable evidence of the benefits of having mpMRI scanning for diagnosing prostate cancer and allowing a far more accurate pathway for patients with prostate cancer.

    He is also the director of the Greenlight Prostate Cancer Vaporisation training, a surgical technique which led to the NHS excellence committee awarding them for innovation. This technique is better for the patient, in terms of reduced healing time and even in high risk patients, the procedure can be carried out safely and effectively.

    Most recently, Richard was the first surgeon to use the new Rezum treatment for BPH in 2017 and has now performed over 500 cases. This innovative new treatment is a minimally invasive procedure which uses steam therapy to reduce the enlarged prostate. For more information visit www.rezum.co.uk. Richard is offering this both privately and on the NHS.

    On a more personal level, Professor Hindley is a fan of photography, alongside being a lover of tennis, cricket and cycling.

    I have always found Prof Hindley to explain things very clearly, and I believe openly. His comments are to-the-point, and he tackles the upsides and downsides of each issue, and presents options for the way forward, in ways that are easy to understand and assess. Timekeeping and follow-up actions aren't always as slick as one would like, but in that respect he's no better nor worse than other clinicians.

    Many thanks for taking time to leave a review. All feedback is welcomed to ensure our patients are getting the highest levels of care which we aim to provide. Sorry to hear that punctuality and speed of follow up processes has not been as good as you would expect. Unfortunately the impact of covid has meant that many processes take longer than usual while the hospitals remains under their NHS contract and this impacts the efficiency of some of our work. We hope that this improves in the future and we will continue to look into how we can improve our processes and timeliness.

    I found Professor Hindley both easy to talk to and empathic to my feelings. It is never comfortable to have an investigation into one's state of health for obvious reasons. However, the so called 'bed-side manner' of the medical professional is, in my opinion, critical in how the patient feels about the proceedings and the eventual outcome. Professor Hindley also adequately explained what the procedures entailed, the outcome of those procedures and the prognosis. Thank you.

    My personal treatment and care with Professor Hindley and his entire team has been exemplary, from my first contact with Jane Fox with her clear and friendly manner through to my discharge. After some research and a consultation with Professor Hindley I chose the REZUM procedure to treat my BHP I found this treatment to be virtually painless I didn't have to take any medication for pain in this regard, my only discomfort was from the catheter which I had not experienced before. I would recommend this team and this treatment to anyone with a similar condition.
