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, which are often 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 bladder and bowel problems because they are embarrassed. Bladder and Bowel UK provide a wide range of resources to support professionals who work with adults and children with continence issues. Our helpline services are provided by specialist nurses and product specialists who are experts in their field. The team are very experienced in many areas of continence care and skilled in using their skills to support and develop services to enhance health care professionals’ professional development and patients’ experience. In addition, we work in partnership with colleagues in the world of academia to collaborate on research projects.
