Parnell Fund-What we do


About The Parnell Fund

In 2009   Jeremy Ockrim Consultant Uroligist UCLH and Neville Parnell, a long-term patient of ours at UCLH, set up the Parnell Fund a charitable fund within UCLH Charities.

The Parnell Fund has three main objectives supporting patients, staff and medical research

To raise awareness of the urological conditions that affect millions of people in the UK each year and to break down some of the taboos surrounding urological conditions., encouraging people to seek help.

We want to let people know that it is not something they have to live with, they can be treated and quality of life can be restored
