MONTE CARLO: Saturday 12th September 2015

Ebert and I wake to the unfortunate news that the Peugeot 406 has finally succumb to the midnight vandalism. In what I can only describe as the equivalent of King Cong jumping all over the car; the bonnet as well as the sun roof have caved in irreversibly. The good news is that the car is still in one piece, and ready to take on the final stretch of the tour – it is now very much Monte Carlo or Bust for us all!

We plan to travel as a 10 car convoy, but this immediately goes array as Ebert and I suddenly realize that we need fuel. As with the first morning, Ebert and I are left to go it alone, as the other 9 cars stick to the tradition of the trip; “if one car gets left behind…..then it is on its own!”

With no direction, and Ebert’s borderline obsession with Lyon, we are fortunate enough to catch up with the convoy. It is at this point that we experience the first casualty of the trip, as Jeremy and Neville’s jag blew a tire. A quick turn around with the help of Neville the mechanic (I wonder where the tools came from to cut the roof out of the focus?) , we were soon back on the road and with no further problems all 10 cars arrive in Monte Carlo amidst the Bentleys, Ferraris, Porsche’s etc for the grand finale!

The success of the trip is celebrated with a black tie event at the Buddha Lounge in Monte Carlo. After some heartfelt speeches, the group separates with some including myself choosing to take in the sights (Simon one of the Urologists became our expert tour guide of the F1 race track), and others opting to celebrate way into the early hours of the morning. By the looks on the faces of latter at Nice airport the following day, a choice that was very much regrettable!

The Monte Carlo or Bust Challenge was an experience I will truly never forget. Although the sheer volume of driving was often challenging, I also found great satisfaction in crossing the line. With a maximum budget of £500.00, 10 cars travelled from London, and across France, with only 1 suffering what would be deemed serious damage; an amazing feat and all should be applauded for their efforts.

With all that being said it is important to remember that the Monte Carlo or Bust challenge was in aid of the Parnell Fund, a charity that promotes bladder health and awareness, whilst simultaneously raising funds for the Urology Department and UCLH.

If you would like to donate, please use the link below. All donations are very much appreciated.

A special mention must go to 101 Diagnostics for the contribution and support that helped make this trip happen. Ebert and I are truly grateful!

MONTE CARLO: Friday 11th September 2015

With our time keeping slightly improving (Jeremy only had to text us 4 times and call twice), we discover our next destination is Grenoble! Thankfully the car has managed to avoid the now mandatory midnight vandalism, but Jeremy and Neville are now unknowingly accompanied by a tin of sardines!

At this point of the trip, and with a few solo efforts our on record, Ebert and I decide the best and most efficient tactic when driving long distances is to convoy up with at least one other car. 4 of the other cars also agree with this tactic and we hit the road in a convoy of 5.

I must admit the journey from Dijon to Grenoble was my most memorable. It was full of rural towns, and the weather was particularly warm that day (not that we had had a bad day yet!). After a quick coffee/croissant/pain au chocolat break in said rural town, it was time to head for the rendezvous point in Grenoble; the cable cars situated in the centre.

All 10 cars and 20 passengers arrived safely in Grenoble (albeit a little late due to a major traffic jam on the motorway – another one Ebert and myself managed to escape courtesy of Julian Shah). A quick trip via the cable cars to the top of the mountain offer breathtaking views of the city below, and the chance to stretch our legs after another long day of driving.

Time to settle down for the night but not before a meal at the hotel, and few glasses of red wine – now that we are all fully fledged connoisseurs of course!

Day 3 complete – all 10 cars still going strong and the weather has remained warm. Lucky for the red focus!

 

MONTE CARLO: Thursday 10th September 2015

A late start for Ebert and me, and with Mr Ockrim taking no prisoners on this trip, we were left behind with an envelope that contained our instructions for the day and destination ahead. News of vandalism to some of the cars the night before had spread quickly. We now had a red ford focus that was part convertible (DIY sunroof), and Jeremys Jag had mysteriously lost a wing mirror. With no time for breakfast……to Dijon via Troyes we go!

We arrived in Dijon during fresher’s week, so the city was buzzing with all sorts of initiations, including students carrying their mattresses to different points of the city and laying on them for periods of time….strange!

A tour of Dijon had been laid on by Jeremy and Neville, and we were shown around the city by a very colourful character named Guy (pronounced ‘Gee’ – a point he made clear each time it was pronounced in the British way). The tour of the city provided the chance to take in some history and taste variety of local mustards.

After a head and mouth full of Dijon, it was time to move onto wine tasting followed by a steak dinner. Hopefully, our car would escape the previous night’s vandalism!

 

Day 2 complete – all 10 cars intact (minus a ford focus roof and a wing mirror from Jeremy’s Jag)

 

MONTE CARLO: Wednesday 9th September 2015

We all met at the George Lomax Car Park behind UCLH at 07:30 a.m.

This was our first opportunity to take photos and meet the other drivers, but there was a feeling of anxiety in the air as the 10 cars were revealed. Ebert and I were happy with our Peugeot 406 Coupe and we headed off to Folkstone to start our adventure.

After arriving at Calais, our first destination was Disneyland, but this may not be the fairytale ending, as we were a car down already.

Our convoy of 9 was soon down to 2 as the other 7 decided to speed up ahead in attempt to arrive first. Ebert and I however decided to follow Jeremy Ockrim’s car which had diverted through the country lanes of France, creating a more picturesque setting. Not only did we get to see some lovely sites, but it turned out to be a stroke of genius as there was a 5 car pileup on the motorway which the rest of the party were stuck in, meaning we arrived at our destination in 1st& 2nd place.

Well done Mr Ockrim!
Day 1 complete – time for some well-deserved beverages and some team bonding!

MONTE CARLO OR BUST BEGINS

Today Ebert and James joined the rest of the team behind the Monte Carlo Or Bust challenge (detailed below). They are driving to Monte Carlo from UCLH in cars costing less than £499 to raise money for The Parnell Fund, a charity dedicated to promoting bladder health and raising funds for vital urology research.

To donate to The Parnell Fund, click here.

 

MONTE CARLO OR BUST


As of 9th September 2015 our General Manager, Ebert Hyman, and Accounts Manager, James Flaherty, will be joining colleagues from the business, legal and medical world to raise money for ‘The Parnell Fund’.

The Parnell Fund is a charity promoting bladder health and raising funds for vital urology research at University College London Hospitals (UCLH).  The fund was set up in 2009 by Neville Parnell, a long-term patient at UCLH, and Jeremy Ockrim, Consultant Urologist here and UCLH.

This year’s fundraiser begins on 09 September 2015 and involves a 950 mile romp across Europe. The teams will be setting off from UCLH and driving to Monte Carlo in cars costing less than £499.99.

A donation, no matter how small, would be fantastic and can be made by visiting the ‘justgiving’ page at: https://www.justgiving.com/Neville-Parnell

We will be posting updates and photos along the journey so be sure to check back here to keep up to date on Ebert, James and Jeremy’s fundraising trip.

You can find more information about The Parnell Fund here.

 

Our Minor Procedures Unit is pleased to announce that we have treated our 10,000th patient!

Since opening in 2004, the Minor Procedures Unit has grown considerably to the extent that we currently undertake a wide operative field covering urology, dermatology and plastic surgery under local anaesthetic.  We are hoping to extend this by adding other minor surgical specialties in the forthcoming year.
