B&BF works with a number of different organisations with the aim of improving the services it can offer patients and health professionals, and to offer access to information that may otherwise not be available to them or difficult to find. Please use the link boxes below for more information on our current specialist services.
Continence Clinic Database
Our clinic search facility provides local information on NHS and private continence services in your area. You can phone and make an appointment with most clinics, however, please bear in mind that some clinics will only take referrals from a health professional. To find out where your nearest continence service is please contact the B&BF office on 01536 533255.
Private Clinics – we are now accepting details from private as well as NHS led clinics. if you are a health professional and would like to add your private clinic details to our database so we can advise callers of all their local options, there is a standard fee of £120 for each individual clinic added for a period of one year. Please send us an email if you are interested in this service.

Care Quality Commission (CQC)
As the independent regulator of all health and adult social care services in England, CQC registers, monitors and routinely inspects all hospitals, care homes and home care agencies to ensure that they meet national standards of quality and safety
Your feedback plays a vital role in helping CQC Inspectors to decide when and where to inspect services. If you would like to report poor care, visit www.cqc.org.uk and click on ‘Your experience’.

Talk Incontinence Forum
B&BF is working in partnership with talkhealth to promote a new online continence forum which is managed and run in its entirety by the talkhealth team.
There are many forums on this site, but the ones mainly associated with our work are the forums entitled Incontinence, Men’s Health, IBS and Women’s Health.
If you’d like to join the incontinence forum and begin posting or would like to see what it’s all about please visit the Talkhealth website.
The ‘talkhealth forum’ is not managed, hosted or moderated by Bladder and Bowel Foundation (B&BF) and any continence forums within talkhealth are entirely separate from B&BF. B&BF clinical representatives may take part in a talkhealth continence forum but do not endorse any content posted by others or contribute to any content on the forum sites, unless specifically marked as such. B&BF accepts no responsibility for any of the wider content on the talkhealth forums.
