UCL Queen Square Institute of Neurology


New Years Honours

4 January 2012

We are delighted to announce that Professor Clare Fowler, UCL Professor of Uro-Neurology at the Institute and Honorary Consultant Uro-Neurologist at the NHNN, UCLH Trust, has been awarded a CBE in the New Year Honours List "for services to Uro-Neurology".

Professor Fowler established a specialist unit in 1987 for patients with urological problems and sexual dysfunction as a consequence of neurological disease.

In 1985, a syndrome was named after her – Fowler’s Syndrome – after she discovered why people suffer from urinary retention.

She said: “I will be accepting the award on behalf of all the nurses and doctors who have helped me care for patients and build up the department of uro-neurology."
