About Mr Brewin



Mr Brewin graduated from the University of Nottingham Medical School in 2001 before completing his post-graduate urology training in London and Kent with posts at Kings College Hospital, Guy’s Hospital and Brighton. During his training he completed a urology MSc and was awarded the Geoffrey Chisholm medal for outstanding performance. He undertook sub-specialist training in in stone surgery at Guy’s hospital.

He was appointed as a consultant urological surgeon at Salisbury NHS Foundation Trust in 2014. As a general urologist he treats a wide range of urological problems including prostate cancer, urological infections, blood in the urine, foreskin problems and erectile dysfunction.

Mr Brewin specialises in the management of kidney stones and male urinary symptoms. In 2014 he established laser prostate surgery (HoLEP) at Salisbury District Hospital, the first hospital in the Wessex region to offer this surgery. He has now performed this operation for over 50 patients.
