These revision notes were all prepared by Tom Walton, former Specialty Registrar in Urology, and he has generously donated them to BSoT, together with the message below

... Feel free to use my revision notes (below) and audio files as you see fit.  They were compiled over a period of two years, leading up to a successful attempt at the FRCS Urol, at which I was awarded the Keith Yeates Medal.  

"Whilst I have made every attempt to ensure that the information contained in the notes is accurate, they were never destined for publication, and as such I am sure a keen eye will identify the occasional error here and there. Nevertheless, I am sure you will find them a useful resource; I certainly continue to use them regularly in my post at Nottingham University Hospitals NHS Trust, and as part of Nottingham Urology Group.  

"If you wish to leave any feedback about the notes, please do not hesitate to e-mail me. If you feel particularly moved to offer money, I would be grateful if you would consider a charitable donation to Prostate Action, who supported my Fellowship overseas.  

"Alternatively, a pint at a conference will do ... cheers!"
