Our nurses assess people in North Lincolnshire with continence problems (urinary and faecal) and where possible provide them with a treatment programme which will reduce/resolve their condition. They can also prescribe continence products where treatment options have been unsuccessful.
The service operates five days a week, Monday to Friday, and provides clinic appointments at the Ironstone Centre in Scunthorpe, as well as home assessments for those patients who are housebound. Staff also regularly attend the residential and nursing homes within North Lincolnshire to assess and treat patients who reside in care homes.
All types of continence issues are assessed by the service and treatment options vary depending on the condition. Some of the treatment options include intermittent self-catheterisation, pelvic floor educators and exercise programmes, medication and toileting regimes.
