    The need for serial surveillance cystoscopy after a diagnosis of bladder cancer and long wait times led to the development of a nurse-led cystoscopy in The University Hospital of Southwestern Denmark, in Esbjerg, Denmark. This paper discusses the background, development and success of these training programme in Esbjerg, Denmark. Four nurses have participated in a structured in-house training programme that started in 2014. In the last 4 years these four nurses have successfully performed 1024 cystoscopies. To date, there have not been any poor outcomes, in terms of missed diagnosis or procedure complications. This programme has offered a way to improve satisfaction of the residents and staff urologists while successfully and safely meeting the needs of the community.
