The Continence, Urology and Colorectal Service (CUCS) is for any person, living in Leeds with a Leeds GP, aged 16 years or older, with a bladder, bowel or stoma problem or who experiences incontinence.
The service provides advice and education to community nurses and other health, social or informal carer.
The nursing team holds clinics and performs home visits. 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 team is made up of a service manager, clinical pathway lead , clinical nurse specialists, staff nurses and assistant practitioners supported by an administration team.
The service works with local universities to take part in research to improve quality of care.
Most referrals come to the Continence, Urology and Colorectal Service by a GP, community nurse or hospital, although patients may refer themselves to the service using this self-referral form.
GPs or other healthcare professionals refer patients by sending a completed referral form to the service.
