Continence Advisory Service

Locala cannot guarantee the accuracy of this translation service.

Locala Continence Advisory Service is made up of a team of specialist nurses and a physiotherapist who have skills in both assessment and treatment of bladder, bowel and pelvic floor problems.

Thousands of men, women and children in the UK have trouble with their bladder and bowels. Continence problems can be difficult to talk about and people often put up with symptoms such as leaks or urgency for years. They adapt their lives as they try to cope and often don't seek help because they feel embarrassed.

Our service is open access which means you can refer yourself directly by telephone leaving some details with our reception staff. We also take referrals from GPs, practice nurses, consultants and any health professional.

 

On your first visit you will be given a comprehensive assessment and a personalised treatment plan.
