Its like a needle in a haystack over the pond. Bio's not listed. You go to Christie for instance and under women and cystectomy you get an entire page on the ileal conduit...thats it and no nerve sparing...no sex life possible after.
Much harder to research over there and they probably don't want you to.
I hope our system doesn't change like that.

You could try this link:

http://www.cancerindex.org/clink44r.htm

I will not be so bold as to say which is the best or which Docs work where but it does list all the regional cancer centres in the UK which would be a start.

Well help us out Betsy Mae..give us some links to hopitals and doctors. I find it much more difficult to research the UK than anywhere else.

There are many excellent regional cancer centres here in the UK - not just the Royal Marsden.

Maz...this is an older site but lists top hospitals in the NIH
www.canceractive.com/cancer-active-page-link.aspx?n=435&Title=Centres%20of%20Excellence
Apparently if in the UK you want a referral to The Royal Marsden
www.royalmarsden.nhs.uk/rmh
The NIH should be able to help you. I just know a recent mandate made in the UK was to refer all bladder cancer patients to major bladder cancer centers due to dismal results. I posted it somewhere here...i'll find it
