The North East region is an area of outstanding natural beauty. The region includes Northumberland National Park, Teesdale, Weardale, as well as one of most beautiful, and under-visited, coastlines in the United Kingdom.
The urology services extend as far as Carlisle and the northern Lake District.
The area contains two National Heritage sites, Hadrian's Wall (pictured) and Durham Cathedral. Roman archaeology can be found throughout the region and much of its cultural heritage is based on a strong religious heritage, including important works such as the Lindisfarne Gospels.
Much of the region's industrial heritage was founded on coal mining, chemical production, iron & steel manufacture and shipbuilding. These, apart from widespread coal mining, continue to the present day.
The North of England Urology Society (NEUS) meets once a year, in November, at the Durham County Cricket ground. Details of upcoming meetings, contacts & all other aspects of NEUS activity can be found on the NEUS website. The NEUS annual meeting provides an opportunity for trainees to present audit & research, an AGM where there is feedback from the regional BAUS representatives, educational sessions with renowned speakers from across the UK, and a chance to network & develop links between the centres in the region.
