The service is provided by continence specialist nurses.

We offer a comprehensive specialist service in Cambridgeshire and Peterborough for continence assessment, treatment and advice for anyone over the age of 18 with bowel and bladder dysfunction.

Conditions treated include urinary frequency and urgency, stress leakage, outflow obstruction, incontinence and faecal incontinence. The service may provide incontinence products following a clinical assessment and service criteria.

Children over the age of four may also be provided with continence pads following a school nurse or health visitor assessment and referral by the children’s service. A programme of continence training is provided for staff. Clinic appointments are offered county wide from a number of locations in the community.

A programme of training is provided for health care professionals, care home staff, carers and support workers about incontinence issues.
