Continence for All

Continence promotion advice - many patients suffer embarrassment and only come forward for help when incontinence is severe and with an expectation of a supply of products. Continence budgets are continually overspent. Early basic advice on self management and how to seek support could reduce the number of people presenting in later life with intractable incontinence.
