The Patient Advisory Group was set up in November 2009 by the BAUS Section of Endourology and consists of two surgeons (one of whom must be a member of the Section of Endourology executive committee) and five patient representatives.
The purpose of the group is to seek patients’ views and advice on:
- patient needs and requirements for information relating to stone disease
- research priorities and input into research trial design & management
- service design and improvements
The group's first priority is to ensure that patients with a kidney stone should have readily accessible information and be able to find out where their nearest endourologist is.
