Dorset Bladder & Bowel Continence Service

We provide a nurse-led service to support people across Dorset with bladder and bowel problems.

Our continence team works with people to alleviate or cure the problem, or to help them manage the problem effectively. The provision of pad supply for Dorset is managed by this service. Assessments are conducted in a secure, private environment by a specialist nurse. Treatment and support can include lifestyle advice, bladder retraining, pelvic floor exercises, electrical stimulation, irrigation devices and bladder scanning.

We work with GPs for the prescribing of medication and devices, where necessary, and can link in with other healthcare professionals when more specialised treatment is required. We also provide support to families and carers, and advice for other health and social care professionals.

If you, or your loved one, would like to access this service and can attend a clinic in your area, please speak to your GP or any other healthcare professional involved with your care to arrange a referral. Alternatively you can telephone the relevant office to self-refer or to ask for more information.

The offices are open to enquiries from 8.30am until 4.30pm Monday to Friday.
