Who we are:
The Continence Service is a County wide service available to
adults living within the County Durham and Darlington area; based
at Bishop Auckland Hospital. Clinics are held in various
locations across the County.
What we do:
We offer a discreet and confidential service to both men and
women. Patients are usually seen in a clinic environment; however,
a home visit can be arranged if appropriate. Initial
appointments take approximately 40 minutes, this includes a review
Following initial assessment, treatment options will be
discussed with the patient and a plan of care agreed.
We work alongside our medical and surgical colleagues to ensure
all our patients receive a high standard of continence care which
is based on up to date knowledge and skills.
