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.
