Local Information - Continence advice
If you have any continence issues you can either ask your Doctor, or other Healthcare Professional, to refer you to the Continence Service. Alternatively, you can also refer yourself by using the following information.
Phone: 01274 322171
Address: The Continence Service, Eccleshill Clinic, Rillington Mead, Harrogate Road, Bradford BD10 0ED
The service tries to see people within 4 – 6 weeks and it may be that they will refer you to a Physiotherapist if they feel that a specialist physiotherapist is more likely to be able to assist you.
If you are offered a Continence Service appointment, it will last about 1 hour and will be at a health clinic near to your home.
At this appointment, you will see a Continence Nurse Specialist who will offer you an examination and give you advice. The Nurse can also refer you on to other healthcare professionals if he/she thinks that this may also be of benefit to you.
You will be sent some information prior to your appointment, which will include instructions about the information that you need to take to the appointment.
This service covers the whole Bradford and Airedale region.
