Bladder & bowel health

Bladder and bowel problems in adults are not uncommon, affecting both males and females of all ages. Common problems may include urgently needing to pass urine, incontinence, or difficulties fully emptying the bladder or bowel.


We understand that having a bladder and/or bowel problem, can cause embarrassment, anxiety and distress.


These problems can often have a major impact on an individual’s quality of life.


Often, people are reluctant to discuss their symptoms with anyone, as they find it difficult to admit they are experiencing a problem.
