The bladder and bowel service provides specialist nurse/physiotherapy assessment, treatment and management service to patients who have bladder and/or bowel problems. Some clinics are offered outside traditional working hours and clinics are offered at various locations. We also offer home visits for people who are housebound and we see patients from within and outside of the Bolton area.
The district nursing service is a 24 hours a day, seven days a week service providing nursing care to patients who are housebound, in the patient’s usual place of residence. The nursing teams are based in local health centres, and work closely with GPs and a wide variety of other services and agencies. The team can coordinate care, which includes discharge planning for patients who have been in hospital and need care from the district nursing team when transferred home.
