Prostate FFIT exercise programme
We’ve teamed up with the SPFL Trust (Scottish Professional Football League Trust) to launch the new and unique Prostate Football Fans in Training (Prostate FFIT). It’s a free 12-week pilot project for men living with prostate cancer. It’s based on the popular Football Fans in Training programme which is already successfully running at several SPFL clubs across Scotland.
- Initial courses started in January 2023 at Ibrox (Rangers FC) and Tynecastle (Heart of Midlothian FC)
- Men will get the opportunity to meet and share experiences with other men living with prostate cancer
- The programme is supported by experts in prostate cancer and fitness including Prostate Scotland, University of Glasgow and the SPFL Trust
- Men will build their knowledge of exercise, diet and nutrition over 12 weeks
- The course meets medical guidelines for men on hormone therapy where an exercise programme is recommended
- We aim to roll out Prostate FFIT to other clubs across Scotland
- Men can find out more and register their interest with Prostate Scotland for the next courses
- If you would like to know more, or would like A4 posters or A5 leaflets for your workplace, please contact:

Scottish Fellowship and Clinical Visits Awards Programme
We’ve launched a Scottish Fellowship and Clinical Visits Awards Programme. This is aimed at increasing the number of urologists in Scotland trained in robotic assisted prostate cancer surgery. We’re working in association with The Urology Foundation on this project.
Applications are sought from:
- trainees/urologists working in Scotland or moving to work in Scotland, wishing to undertake a prostate robotic fellowship as a joint application with a recognised robotic centre within the UK or Europe, or a Clinical Visit. More details can be found here.
