Before leaving for Australia, he was an NIHR Academic Clinical Lecturer at University College Hospital London. He is the clinical co-ordinator for the National Prostate Cancer Audit and the chief investigator in a number of clinical trials including the PRIME study, which is a study assessing intraoperative PET imaging during robotic prostate cancer surgery, the RAFT study, a trial assessing the efficacy and safety of salvage robotic prostate cancer surgery after focal therapy, as well as the PROVENT study, a trial assessing the efficacy of Vitamin D and aspirin to prevent prostate cancer progression in men on active surveillance for low risk prostate cancer.

Mr Paul Cathcart is a fantastic young surgeon. He's probably the only surgeon in this area who is specialising in complex cases.
