Continence services or continence advisory services are specialist teams of nurses and physiotherapists that can help you with bladder and bowel symptoms. Depending on the nature of your symptoms this could include help with:
- exercises to improve bladder or bowel control
- support with medication
- products such as pads or catheters.
You can usually contact your local continence service directly and don't need to be referred by your GP. The Bladder and Bowel Community website allows you to search for local continence services across the UK.
