Urology Services

Ward 1 Freeman Hospital

Ward 1 is an adult urology ward which provides care for men and women requiring treatment for a range of common conditions affecting the urinary tract.  These can involve the:

  • kidneys
  • ureter
  • bladder
  • prostate
  • urethra
  • male reproductive system

To reduce the number of days you need to stay in hospital, we admit patients to the ward on the same day as the planned procedure.  If you are having a more straight-forward procedure you may be able to go home the same day.
