Decide on a treatment together

Working in partnership with your healthcare professional can help you find the best treatment and improve your quality of life.​

Of course, if you’re interested in getting more information about treatment before you make an appointment, you can find top-line information in What treatments are available? However, no one is better able to talk you through your options than a professional who understands incontinence, so the best advice is to fix a date as soon as possible!

Since it can sometimes be difficult to remember what is said during an appointment, we’ve created a tool that can help you to record the most important details. This way you have all the information you need to refer to when you return home. You can print this off and fill it in by hand, or you can fill it in electronically on your phone.

The downloadable checklist has space for you to make a note of the type of incontinence your healthcare professional thinks you might have, the possible causes of the condition and the names of any suitable treatments.

There is also room to write down the recommended next steps, including any further appointments you may have to make with incontinence specialists.
