Haywards Heath Surgeon appointed president of health board in Europe


A urological surgeon at Nuffield Hospital in Haywards Heath has been appointed to a top job.

Jan Nawrocki, who specialises in prostate disease, has been appointed President Elect of the European Board of Urology.

Jan trained in Medicine, Surgery and Urology, becoming a Fellow of the Royal College of Surgeons in 1989.

He was appointed a Master of Surgery following research into the treatment of benign prostate enlargement and was appointed a Consultant Urological Surgeon at the Princess Royal and Royal Sussex County Hospitals in 1997.

“To have the best care for patients, we need the best doctors and the best surgeons,” said Jan.

“The European Board of Urology sets the standard for education and training, setting out a recommended curriculum, assessment and examination standards.

“My ambition is to raise even higher the standard of this teaching, giving institutions accreditation and monitoring the expertise of doctors as they progress.”

John McMenamin, Nuffield’s Hospital Director, said he was ‘delighted’ and ‘so pleased’ for Jan.
