Bladder and Bowel problems among adults are not uncommon, affecting both males and females of all ages. Some common bladder problems may include bladder leakage (incontinence), bed wetting or difficulties emptying the bladder. Some common bowel problems may include leakage (faecal incontinence), constipation and difficulties emptying the bowel.

We understand that having a bladder or bowel problem (or both), can cause embarrassment, anxiety and distress, often having a major impact on an individuals quality of life. Often people are reluctant to discuss their symptoms with anyone, but it is important to know that much can be done to treat, manage and improve symptoms.

Here at Bladder and Bowel UK, we can offer advice, support and practical help.

We have a team of dedicated Specialist Nurses and knowledgeable Continence Product Information staff, who can be contacted on the National Confidential Bladder and Bowel UK help line ( 0161 607 8219) or via email at bladderandboweluk@disabledliving.co.uk
