Bladder and bowel continence services

We provide a nurse-led service to support people across Dorset with bladder and bowel problems.

Our continence advisory team works with people to alleviate or cure the problem, or to help them manage the problem effectively. Assessments are conducted in a secure, private environment by a specialist nurse, and support/treatment can include lifestyle advice, bladder retraining, pelvic floor exercises, electrical stimulation and bladder scanning.

We work with GPs for the prescribing of medication, where necessary, and can link in with other healthcare professionals when more specialised treatment is required. We also provide support to families and carers, and advice for other health and social care professionals.

If you, or your loved one, would like to access this service and can attend a clinic in your area, please speak to your GP or any other healthcare professional involved with your care. You can also contact us direct for more information.
