Face masks: Due to the sharp rise in Covid-19 infections in our communities and on our wards, we require that all staff, patients and visitors wear face masks in all clinical and public areas, in all health and care settings, unless exempt.
Continence (bladder and/or bowel) problems affect people of all ages and is one of the most miserable and unpleasant problems you can bear.
It can cause feelings of embarrassment, isolation and even humiliation. As a result of these feelings many often try and hide the problem and attempt to cope alone, worried about seeking help and fearful of further shame.
Being incontinent doesn’t have to lead to discomfort and embarrassment. In many cases it can be completely cured and where this is not possible, it can be effectively managed to help you live a normal fulfilled life.
We have a specialist team of healthcare professionals who are experienced in the assessment, treatment and management of continence problems for people in hospital and in the community.
Your local continence team is able to provide you with confidential help, advice and support with any concerns you might have relating to bladder and/or bowel problems.
