We provide assessment and treatment of adults with bladder, bowel or stoma and catheter problems. We support patients and their family/carer to self-care and control their symptoms.
We hold specialist clinics across the city and see patients at home if necessary.
Who's it for?
Any patient, living in Leeds with a Leeds GP, aged 16 years or older. All patients will be asked to complete a self-assessment form before their appointment, this helps to ensure that the first appointment targets the specific problem(s) the patient is experiencing.

Examples of our care include:
Accessible care for people with bladder, bowel, pelvic floor and stoma problems
Specialist nursing care for patients with complex bladder, bowel, stoma and catheter problems

Prescribing appropriate, cost-effective treatments
Most referrals come to the Continence, Urology and Colorectal Service by a GP, Neighbourhood Team or hospital, although patients may refer themselves to the service using a self-referral form. GPs or other healthcare professionals refer patients by sending a completed referral form to the service.
