A surgeon from Queen Alexandra Hospital joined doctors from around the country on a charity bike ride.

Dr Dom Hodgson took part in a 210-mile cycle from London to Manchester, raising money for the Urology Foundation.

Dr Hodgson joined other members of the British Association of Urological Surgeons (BAUS), in the ride starting from its headquarters in London.

The idea of the event was for all the surgeons to raise £1,000 for the charity as they made their way towards the annual BAUS conference in Manchester.

The funds raised will be used by the Urology Foundation to support the training of more surgeons and operating theatre teams in robotic-assisted surgery.

The ride took the surgeons three days to reach their destination with all achieving their target of £1,000.

As well as helping towards training more qualified surgeons, the money will help fund more robotic assistants.

The Urology Foundation hopes to help the thousands of people who are diagnosed in the UK each year.
