Continence advisory service- Waltham Forest adult community health service

The continence advisory service, now part of the Waltham Forest adult community health service, delivers a community bladder/bowel dysfunction service for patients with or without incontinence to provide effective clinical care, management and treatment. The service provides skilled nursing assessment, treatment and advice to people with complex continence needs, including urinary and/or faecal problems. It promotes continence and management of symptoms to improve quality of life. Home visits are available for patients who are unable to leave their home.

The service also manages the continence pad provision and, in conjunction with the community adult and paediatric nurses, recommends suitable containment products where necessary in complex cases. People requiring basic continence assessments and pads should be referred to the district nursing service or school nurse. The service also offers education and training to health and care professionals.
