The Bladder & Bowel UK team aims to improve awareness and solutions to bladder and bowel problems across the nation. We offer a range of resources and leaflets, continence supplies online, a directory of bladder and bowel products, free confidential advice via our Bladder & Bowel UK helpline, and training days for healthcare professionals.
Bladder problems are not uncommon and can affect adults of all ages. Up to six million people in the UK are thought to experience urinary incontinence. There are several types of urinary incontinence. The most common types can include stress, urge, mixed, overflow and functional incontinence.
Adults can also experience other problems such as bedwetting and constipation.
It is common that individuals self manage, maybe never seeking professional advice that is available to them, sometimes assuming nothing can be done to help. It’s important to know that a lot can be done to cure, treat or manage bladder and bowel problems. However, we understand that they can often be difficult to talk about. It is not an inevitable consequence of ageing and there is a much wider choice of treatments, products and management options available to people. Many people do not discuss these problems because they are embarrassed.
