Rapid Access Prostate Clinics (NCCP)

Your GP may refer you to a urology department, often through one of the Rapid Access Prostate Clinics if you are aged between 50 and 70 years of age or from 40 years if there is a close relative with prostate cancer (father /brother).

These are special clinics set up in conjunction with the NCCP (National Cancer Control Programme) to provide a fast, efficient service for men who need further tests done to assess for prostate cancer and are located in the 8 designated cancer centres in Ireland. Here you will be assessed by the Urologist (doctor) and you may also meet a prostate nurse specialist.
