About me

Charlotte Foley qualified at Oxford University and undertook specialist Urology training at teaching hospitals in North London. For her last two years as a trainee, she focused on her subspecialist interest of reconstructive and ‘female urology’. This meant spending a year at University College London Hospital, then a further Fellowship year at the Royal Brisbane and Womens’ Hospital in Australia. She started as a Consultant in April 2012.

She undertakes all aspects of General Urology with particular expertise in Transperineal prostate biopsy (providing this service across Hertfordshire), Incontinence and Urine infections. Her experience in mesh removal has allowed her NHS Hospital to be recognised as a Mesh removal centre.

Areas of interest
