    Jon McFarlane is a Consultant Urological Surgeon working in Bath, with a specialist interest in prostate cancer and other prostate diseases. He aims to offer a rapid, individualised, personal service to all his patients to try and diagnose and resolve problems quickly with as little stress as possible. He is a member of the Bath Urology Group - working as a team allows immediate cross referral if a different Urology sub-specialty expertise is required, along with guaranteed Consultant cover for any urgent clinical issues that arise during periods of absence.

    Since his consultant appointment in 2002, Jon has worked to develop and improve urological services in Bath, and introduced many new services and techniques, including both laparoscopic radical prostatectomy, prostate brachytherapy and transperineal template biopsy. He has held a number of senior NHS posts, including 4 years as Head of the Surgical Division, and is currently the RUH Associate Medical Director for Cancer Services. He was a National Clinical Advisor to NHS Improvement for prostate cancer services from 2010-14, and a member of the Prostate Cancer Advisory Group from 2011-2018.

    He trained in preclinical medicine at Oxford University (1985-88), before moving to Cambridge University for clinical training at Addenbrookes Hospital (1988-91). His early surgical training was undertaken in Cambridge and London, where he received the Master of Surgery higher degree after a period of clinical research. He then moved to Oxford for specialist training in Urology, and spent a year in Melbourne on a Urology Fellowship with an interest in prostate cancer. On return to the UK, he took the final specialist FRCS(Urol) examination in 2002, where he was awarded the Keith Yeates gold medal as the best candidate that year. The award came with a travelling fellowship bursary which he used to further train in prostate cancer surgery at Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center in New York prior to taking up his Consultant appointment.
