Many women suffer from embarrassing, distressing problems of poor bladder control and bladder dysfunction. It is important to take the opportunity to ask about such problems, for example, during menopausal consultations. Management should start with simple diet and lifestyle advice, with involvement of the local Continence service.

In this section, you'll find information on when to refer a patient and which drugs can be used, with regularly updated prices. Useful meetings are on the Events page and you can download Advice sheets for patients from the downloads page.

If you have any suggestions for other topics, relevant meetings or news items to be included, please email suggestions using the email link at the foot of this site.
