National Continence Awareness Week
The week beginning 15th September- 19th September is National Continence
Awareness Week which is run each year to highlight the various problems
with control of bladder and/or bowels. This year the focus is on male
continence problems. There will be displays with information available,
particularly for male problems but also for all aspects of incontinence
and bladder and bowel control, in the foyers of Caithness General Hospital
and the Dunbar Hospital throughout the week.
During the week it is hoped to also highlight the clinic held in both Wick
and Thurso fortnightly which is for both men and women and for all types
of continence problems.
A leaflet is available and appointments
can be made without a doctor's referral by telephoning 01847 893239.
Additionally a support group is been
formed recently which is in it's developmental stages at present and is
designed to offer support and information for sufferers and their carer's.
