NHS NELFT - Continence advisory service
The continence advisory service delivers a community bladder/bowel dysfunction service for patients with or without incontinence to provide effective clinical care, management and treatment.
The continence advisory service provides skilled assessment, treatment and advice to people with complex continence needs, including urinary and/or faecal problems.
It promotes continence and management of symptoms to improve quality of life.
Patients are offered appointments although home visits are available for patients who are unable to leave their home.
The service manages the continence pad provision and, in conjunction with the community adult and paediatric nurses, recommends suitable containment products where necessary.
People only requiring continence pads should be referred to the district nursing service.
The service also offers education and training to health and care professionals.
