Continence clinics can be based in a hospital or in the community, often attached to a health centre.
They have specialist teams providing support and medical advice for people with bladder or bowel incontinence.
You don't need to be referred by your GP and can phone them directly to make an appointment."If you prefer not to see your GP, these are an excellent alternative first stop for diagnosis and treatment," says Logan.
"We can significantly improve life for 75-80% of the people who come to us with incontinence problems."On your first visit, a continence adviser, usually a nurse who specialises in bowel and bladder problems, will assess you and explain your incontinence treatment options.
The PEBBLES Team works collaboratively with families, education staff, other Therapy Focus therapists and health care professionals to provide the individuals with a support framework that caters to their needs.
PEBBLES services are delivered via home and school visits, as well as from clinics located in Cockburn (Rocky Bay clients), Fremantle, Maddington, Mirrabooka and Mandurah.
