Objective: The objective of this article is to establish current levels of activity and interest in global urology amongst British urologists, in order to inform BAUS Urolink and guide future strategic decision making. Subjects and methods: Voluntary online surveys were sent to all BAUS members in May 2014. Results: This survey demonstrated a significant level of interest and engagement by BAUS members in global urology. Over 40% of respondents had participated in overseas work, predominantly in the form of short-term visits. Motivating factors for involvement included a desire to help, but personal and organisational benefits were also noted. Conclusion: There was consensus that Urolink represents an important part of BAUS, with a clear desire for improvements in dissemination of opportunities to widen engagement amongst the BAUS membership.
