Miss Maya Basu
Consultant Gynaecologist, subspecialist in urogynaecology
BSc (hons.), MRCOG, md (res)
After graduating from Imperial College London, I undertook my core training in obstetrics and gynaecology in London and Kent, before completing a subspecialty fellowship in urogynaecology at St George’s Hospital in London. After completing my fellowship, I took up a consultant post at Medway Hospital in Kent in 2013, where I spent five productive years before relocating to Manchester to take up a position as a subspecialist consultant urogynaecologist at St Mary’s Hospital in 2018.
In addition to my clinical work, I am an active and committed researcher and have been appointed as an honorary senior lecturer at the University of Manchester. My current research projects focus on recurrent urinary tract infections and the use of imaging in urogynaecology. As well as being awarded a doctorate for my research into overactive bladder, I am the author of over 35 papers in peer reviewed medical journals and several book chapters. I am frequently invited to give lectures on various aspects of urogynaecology, both by professional societies and also by external bodies. I am the lead for undergraduate gynaecology at St Mary’s Hospital and see this as key to ensuring that the doctors of the future are well equipped to care for women in their future careers.
Urinary incontinence and pelvic floor problems are common conditions that have a huge impact on women’s quality of life, self-esteem and overall wellbeing. My personal philosophy is to always ensure a woman-centred approach which places each individual patient’s goals, concerns and wishes at the centre of all consultations.

I live in the local area, having moved north from Kent in 2018. In my spare time I am an enthusiastic (but plodding) runner. I also enjoy reading and experimenting in the kitchen. I love to travel and am always looking for new destinations to visit.
