Continence issues can sometimes have a disproportionate impact on your life. Our expert team are here to help you get on with your day.
Your needs are unique so Eimear or Ita will work with you, in confidence, to identify what you need. Together you will set continence goals and make a plan to achieve them through guidance and reviews. Goals can be specific like improving predictability or long-term goals like increasing self-management.
Tailored management plans can include trans-anal irrigation training (bowel washout) and intermittent catheterisation training (ISC/CIC), catheter type review and pad review. We will link in with your existing healthcare teams to maintain consistency in your healthcare.
Our experienced team is here to help, providing tailored advice and support to meet your needs.
The Neurogenic Continence Clinic is designed to support people with neurogenic bowel dysfunction, which is common for people with Spina Bifida, Spinal Cord Injury and Multiple Sclerosis.
Continence issues can affect anyone. This clinic supports people who don’t have a neurogenic bowel and bladder but need support with managing their continence needs. The Bowel and Bladder Clinic can support people with Cerebral Palsy, Muscular Dystrophy, Osteogenesis Imperfecta, Arthrogryposis and other neuro-physical disabilities.
First, we’ll meet – by phone, Zoom or in-house, whichever suits you – to understand your needs and get a comprehensive bowel and bladder history from you. Then we’ll create a plan of action. We’ll work with you as long as you need to achieve your goals.
