This award, which recognises excellence in surgical training, was instigated in 2013 by Mr Ben Grey, now a Consultant Urologist at Manchester Royal Infirmary, whilst he was Chair of SURG (now BSoT).


The Silver Cystoscope (pictured in the hands of Mr Oliver Wiseman, 2018 winner) is presented on an annual basis to the Consultant voted as the "Best Trainer" in UK & Irish urology.

Since its inception, the award has been generously sponsored by Karl Storz UK.

Candidates are proposed by trainees from the UK & Ireland, and the award is voted for by the BSoT members.

Nominations for the 2019 Silver Cystoscope Award have now closed
