Mr Richard Robinson
MBChB, MD, FRCS (Urol)
I strongly believe in providing the most up to date evidence based treatments for my patients. As a consultant I have expertise in all areas of general urology and urological oncology, with subspecialty interests in the diagnosis and treatment of bladder and kidney cancer.
I qualified from the University of Bristol in 2001 and undertook the early years of my surgical and urological training on the south coast before moving to Manchester in 2007 to undertake specialty training in urology.
During my time in Manchester I spent three years at the Christie Hospital, Europe's largest single site cancer centre, of which two years were spent between the Christie and the University of Manchester undertaking research into bladder cancer.
I was awarded a doctorate in 2015 by the University of Manchester for my research into the field. In 2016 I relocated to Hampshire to take up a post as a Consultant Urological Oncological Surgeon in Portsmouth.
Some of the principal treatments carried out by Mr Richard Robinson at Spire include:
Spire Portsmouth Hospital is only able to provide Covid-19 tests to patients undergoing surgery at our hospital. Covid-19 testing or antibody tests are not available as a standalone service.
