Continence Advisory Service

**PLEASE NOTE – IN LINE WITH NATIONAL GUIDANCE WE HAVE MADE SOME CHANGES TO OUR SERVICE AS PART OF LOCALA'S COVID-19 RESPONSE**

Our clinicians have been called up to support front line staff fighting of Covid-19 (Coronavirus). This means that in line with national NHS guidelines, we have reduced the level of service available in order that we can support those with urgent continence care needs. However, the good news is that most bladder & bowel conditions can be improved with some simple lifestyle changes. So please use these pages and the resources, leaflets and information here on self-care. Alternatively, you could call the bladder & bowel UK helpline, to get more advice and may be able to receive one to one advice.

 

Note: the information below relates to the usual services we provide

 

Locala Continence Advisory Service is provided by a team of specialist nurses 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.
