The Parnell Fund has three main objectives supporting patients, staff and medical research


Awareness: Live your life don’t suffer in silence

To raise awareness of the urological conditions that affect millions of people in the UK each year and to break down some of the taboos surrounding urological conditions., encouraging people to seek help.

We want to let people know that it is not something they have to live with, they can be treated and quality of life can be restored

Research: Bladder research improves patients live 

The specialist Female, Functional and Restorative Urology unit at UCLH. Is the largest centre of its kind in The UK and provides expertise to urologists in the UK and abroad with over 70% of its work referred from other hospitals.

Performing reconstructive surgery and treatment for
those with functional urological problems. It offers 
worldwide recognised standards of excellence in research, evaluation and treatment of functional urological 
problems including assessment and management of amongst others, overactive bladder syndrome, stress urinary incontinence, dysfunctional voiding and bladder emptying problems.

Throughout the year we organise various fundraising challenges and special events to raise funds for the Parnell Fund and to help raise public awareness about urological conditions and the effective treatments available.

All the challenges and special events, which take part throughout the year, are self-funded and all staff at the Parnell Fund donate their time and skills free of charge . This ensures that every penny raised supports funding into research, awareness, and education.

The Parnell Fund comprises of leading consultant urologists, specialist medical personal and successful sports and business figures who all share our ethos that funding into Awareness, Research and Education will ultimately benefit patients

To enable this vital funding into Awareness, Research and Education we rely on donations from individuals, legacies, and corporate sponsors.
