Continence Policy

Rotherham Doncaster and South Humber NHS Foundation Trust policy for Incontinence Management and Continence Promotion for Adults within Doncaster Care Groups

This policy is to be phased out and replaced by the Continence Manual.  Please see the Continence Manual in the first instance for up to date procedures.

The purpose of this policy is to set out the criteria for provision of incontinence aids by Doncaster Specialist Continence Service (SCS). The aim is to provide a good quality integrated continence service as outlined in Good Practice in Continence Services (DH 2000), the National Service Framework (NSF) for Older People (2001). The needs of individuals with incontinence will be met, using research and education to promote continence and manage incontinence in an effective and comprehensive way. The philosophy of the SCS is to actively promote continence throughout all Doncaster Care Groups
