Early screening and diagnosis is important for the successful treatment of prostate cancer, and to ensure the best possible outcome.
You’ll have fast access to diagnostic tests and, where needed, a prostate biopsy with next-day results.
The Express Prostate Assessment at Spire Hartswood Hospital is for men who have concerns about prostate disease, whether or not they have any symptoms. You’ll have fast access to diagnostic tests and, where needed, a prostate biopsy with next-day results.
Any man diagnosed with prostate cancer at Spire Hartswood Hospital will be offered treatment choices, including non-surgical options, and plenty of time to discuss these with their consultant urologist and urology nurse practitioner.
Coming for a PSA test does not commit you to further tests or treatment with us. If you already know you have a raised PSA level, we can book you in straight away for an Express Prostate Assessment and, if you can bring your PSA test results with you, we won’t need to repeat the test.
For insured and self-pay patients
Our Express Prostate Assessment service is available to self-pay patients and those with private medical insurance. However, private medical insurers will not normally fund the initial PSA test or first urology nurse appointment.
If you are a self-paying patient, you don’t need a referral from your GP, provided you have booked an appointment to discuss your PSA test results with a urology nurse practitioner or consultant urologist at Spire Hartswood Hospital.
