Continence Service

The service is provided by specialist continence nurses (SCN) with advanced theoretical and knowledge of bladder and bowel dysfunction. We offer advice, training and an advanced specialist clinical service in the prevention and treatment of incontinence.

We independently manage patients with complex bowel and bladder dysfunction across Tower Hamlets and within Barts Health. We recognise that urinary/faecal incontinence compromises skin integrity which contributes to the development of pressure ulcers and can also result in falls.

As expert nurses, we deliver effective and timely care which is essential for patients to enable adaptation and acceptance to life changing events. Our services include education of patients, relatives, carers and health care professionals. We provide consultancy as well as expert clinical skills. We care passionately about the care we provide our patients and the skills and knowledge we share with other healthcare professionals. All of our patient referrals are triaged to make sure they get the right care they need.

You will be seen in the community by one of our three specialist nurses.
Inpatients are seen by our hospital-based nurses.
