COVID19 service update:
The Continence, Urology and Colorectal Service is restarting routine appointments as from Monday 5 October.
All initial and urgent appointments will take place over the phone. Patients will only be asked to attend a face to face appointment if this is necessary.
If you have had your care interrupted as a result of COVID-19 or were awaiting a first appointment please be assured that the service will contact you when the appointment date is known.
If you are concerned regarding a deterioration in your symptoms and would like a telephone consultation, please ring our admin team on 0113 8433715 or email email@example.com.

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.
The service provides advice and education to Neighbourhood Teams and other health, social or informal carer.
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
Providing advice on other containment products
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.
