Our Bladder and Bowel service is based at South Tyneside District Hospital and is made up of registered nurses and an administrative team, who together act as our Continence Team.

Our continence nurse specialists have a responsibility for ensuring members of our multi-disciplinary team are appropriately trained and professionally supported. The team advise on all aspects of continence promotion, assessment, treatment and management of continence related to both bladder and bowel conditions, incorporating all aspects of treatments appropriate to individual need.

Following assessment by our community nursing services, the continence nurse will be able to advise you on the use of continence products supplied to your home, community, independent sector or residential care homes.
