Background Information 
Professional profile:

Mr Ben Grey is a Consultant Urological Surgeon at Central Manchester University Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust (CMFT), working at Manchester Royal Infirmary and Trafford General Hospitals.

Mr Grey practices all components of general urology but he has sub-speciality interests in urinary tract (kidney, ureter, bladder) stone management and Andrology. He offers the full range of therapeutic options for stone disease including minimally invasive endourology/laparoscopy techniques and shockwave lithotripsy. He leads the complex stone service at CMFT and sees patients from across NW England. In addition, he is a member of the UK’s first Andrology multidisciplinary team which oversees the tertiary referral practice seen in erectile dysfunction and Peyronie’s disease at CMFT, itself the only UK centre accredited by the European Academy of Andrology.

He graduated from the University of Manchester and undertook surgical training in Manchester and the North West. He has gained further specialist experience at the Cleveland Clinic in the USA and at stone centres in Amsterdam and Turin.

An active researcher, with over 30 publications and book chapters to date, he received his research doctorate (MD) from the University of Manchester after an intensive study of prostate stem cell biology at the Christie Hospital. He is also a qualified educator (PGCert Distinction) with roles at the University of Manchester, NW Deanery and as an invited faculty member on courses nationwide. In 2013, he was appointed NW Lead for Simulation Training in Urology.

Mr Grey leads on audit and governance for the CMFT Urology Department and his current research interests focus on service improvement (patient safety/satisfaction and efficiency), with the ultimate aim of maximising patients’ experience.

Personal profile:

Mr Grey enjoys spending time with his wife watching their two boys grow up. His playing days are now over but he enjoys watching both rugby and football games and exercises playing squash and running.
