Burton Hospital CEO’s PRIDE AWARD 2017 


Urology is the medical specialty that deals with the diagnosis and treatment of disorders of the male and female urinary tract, and the male reproductive system. The main organs associated with urology include the kidneys, ureters, bladder, adrenal glands, urethra, prostate and the male reproductive organs.

Medical Woman Centenary 2017

Whether they have changed policy, discovered genes, repaired aneurysms, or are active politicians, women have shaped the face of medicine and made enormous contributions often with little or no recognition. It is impossible to compare the successes of someone who compassionately tells our patients they have cancer with that of a person who performs pioneering next surgery. Yet these jobs are equally important and vital for the patients we serve. 

In this landmark edition of Medical Women’s Federation, we have produced a souvenir edition of Medical Woman that pulls together some of the brightest and respected female doctors in our profession.
