Mr Malcolm Lucas, Consultant Urological Surgeon from Morriston Hospital Swansea, received the 2013 St Peter’s Medal, the highest award given annually by the British Association of Urological Surgeons (BAUS) for a contribution which spans a whole career.
The St Peter’s Medal was awarded in recognition of Malcolm's outstanding contribution throughout his career, particularly his work on incontinence treatments and complex pelvic cancers. Since 1991, Malcolm has worked to improve treatment of urinary incontinence locally, nationally and internationally, running a combined service with Mr Simon Emery, Consultant Urogynaecologist.
He is an active researcher, having run a series of randomised controlled trials in the field of incontinence. He co-founded, and later chaired, the BAUS Section of Female and Reconstructive Urology, and worked with the National Institute for Health and Clinical Excellence (NICE) on clinical guidelines for male and female urinary symptoms. He has also chaired a European Association of Urology Guideline Panel on Incontinence, producing guidelines that are translated into 12 other languages and used worldwide.
Malcolm has helped to establish the Swansea Pelvic Oncology team which now deals with complex pelvic cancers from all over South Wales and beyond; he has more experience of this kind of surgery than almost any other urologist in the UK.
