    About

    Mr Chris Blick is a Consultant Urological Surgeon based at The Forbury Clinic offering clinics in London and Berkshire. Following his graduation, he was awarded a fellowship grant by The Royal College of Surgeons, The Urology Foundation and UCare to support a 3-year full time laboratory based scientific research into kidney and bladder cancer. His finding has been published extensively throughout clinical and scientific literature and upon completion of his thesis he was awarded a DPhil (PhD) by Christ Church, University of Oxford.

    He undertook his specialist urological training in the Oxford deanery before its completion with a British Association of Urological Surgeons Fellowship to the Keck Institute of Medicine, University of Southern California, USA. This was completed under the tuition of world renowned Professor Inderbir Gill, a pioneer and international leader of robotic renal and bladder surgery. During his training period he was nominated by his peers as Chairman of the Specialist Urology Registrars Group (SURG) where he represented the UK and Irish specialist urological trainees/residents over a 3-year chairmanship.

    He has a specialist interest in urological cancers, in particular laparoscopic and robotic renal and bladder surgery. He is also highly skilled in general and diagnostic urology

    Mr Blick is an excellent consultant, went out of his way to contact me out of hours to check how things were progressing and made sure I was feeling ok before I left. His support really helped in making me feel a lot better.

    Very thorough. Every aspect of surgery explained and all my questions answered in such a way as I felt comfortable and confident in what was going to happen. The turnaround of surgery was quick and I was visited by Mr Blick with results the following morning. Highly recommended clinic.

    Mr Blick has been great and has worked hard at understanding the symptoms and offering different options of treatment to find the more suitable one. I felt very well supported on each consultation with him. He is also easy to talk to and has a very nice manner about him.

    Mr Blick and his team did a great job with my father. My father had been having problem with urinary problem; his condition was worsened by an increasingly growing scrotal swelling which had restricted his social life. But thanks to Mr Blick and his team my father is a new man now. My father and the whole family were very impressed by the professionalism of the staff at The Urology unit and Berkshire Independent Hospital.

    Mr Blick was very considerate during my test. The test itself was quite intrusive, but Mr Blick ran through everything before, and was very reassuring during the test.

    Mr Chris Blick is a superb colleague and an excellent clinician and Surgeon. I have worked with him for many years, and have known him to be very conscientious and professional with all his patients over this time. I would feel very comfortable for him to look after or operate on any members of my family if the need ever arose.
