Professor Richard Hindley is a Visiting Professor of Knowledge Exchange in the University’s Health and Wellbeing Research Group. He is a Consultant Urological Surgeon and Clinical Lead for Urology at Hampshire Hospitals. He was awarded an MSc in Urology for his research in bladder dysfunction in 1999 before his appointment as a Consultant in 2004. He has since developed an extensive prostate cancer research portfolio and is currently collaborating with other centres including University College London, Imperial College London and the University of Oxford. He is experienced in both teaching and training of undergraduate and postgraduate students and in 2012 was awarded an Honorary Senior Lectureship at the University of Southampton in recognition of his work supervising BMedSci Urology projects.

His other interests are men’s health issues and minimally invasive treatments for benign and malignant prostate problems. His focus is on reducing the side effects of treatments, including the preservation of sexual function.

He regularly presents at National and International Meetings and was a member of the Medical Research Council’s PROMIS trial committee, which investigated the role of imaging in the assessment of patients with suspected prostate cancer. The results of this work were published in The Lancet in 2017. He has been recently appointed as a Specialist Adviser to NICE’s Interventional Procedures Programme.
