    GMC number: 4192813

    Year qualified: 1995

    Place of primary qualification: University of London

    Following a year as a locum consultant at UCLH and four years as Consultant General Urologist at the Royal Hampshire County Hospital in Winchester, Mr Rowland Rees moved to University Hospital Southampton in 2013 to set up a regional andrology service for the central south coast area of England.

    Mr Rees qualified in medicine in 1995 from The Royal London Hospital, undertaking an intercalated degree in neurophysiology. Following 'house doctor' posts, he worked in the A&E/trauma centre at the Royal London and then underwent general surgical training at St George's and the Royal Marsden Hospitals – including posts in urology, general surgery, orthopaedics and cardio-thoracic surgery. He then undertook a fellowship in andrology at the Institute of Urology, London. He went on to join Professor Moncada's world-renowned urology research team at the Wolfson Institute, UCL to undertake basic science research into the molecular biology of genital and prostate smooth muscle function. This culminated in the patenting of Rho-kinase inhibitors for the treatment of benign prostate hyperplasia (BPH). He subsequently spent six years training in urology on the Wessex Urological training programme, working at Portsmouth, Southampton, Bournemouth and Salisbury. This also included a period of paediatric urology at Southampton.

    Mr Rees is Secretary of the BAUS Section of Andrology and Genito-urethral Surgery, is actively involved in the teaching and training of surgeons in the UK and abroad, and is an internationally invited speaker in the field of andology. Aside from being an advisor to NICE and NHS England on andology, he has published and presented extensively in the field.
