Steve Payne was trained in London and Wessex, became a Consultant at Manchester Royal Infirmary in 1988, and retired in 2017. He had andrological and reconstructive urological interests and a strong commitment to medical education, particularly assessment.
He was Joint Committee on Intercollegiate Examinations Chair of the FRCS(Urol) and JSCFE and continues to quality assure exams internationally. Steve is also an external examiner for the Salford Urology MSc course and chairs numerous Data Monitoring Committees for NIHR trials.
Since retirement, Steve has had many other roles. He was Associate Editor of the Professionalism and Patient Safety sections of BJUI Knowledge, recently editing their ebook Being the best doctor you can; he has co-edited the impending 2nd edition of Imaging and Technology in Urology, due out in April 2023. He is Visiting Professor in the Department of Psychology at Bournemouth University, with a research interest in the ageing surgeon which, together with his interest in data analysis, led to his appointment as BAUS Workforce Lead.
Steve travels widely with Urolink, helping train surgeons in sub-Saharan Africa, and has published extensively on his career’s non-technical experiences in the hope they won’t be wasted!
