World Continence Week

World Continence Week (WCW) is a health campaign run by the International Continence Society (ICS) every year to raise awareness of incontinence related issues.

This year World Continence Week is taking place between 17 - 23 June. Throughout the week The Urology Foundation will highlight the impact urinary incontinence can have on our lives and encourage those living with incontinence to seek help so they no longer have to suffer in silence.

World Continence Week 2019

This World Continence Week, TUF are celebrating 15 years of the Botox treatment for Overactive Bladder (OAB). TUF and our researcher, Mr Arun Sahai, played an important part in making this treatment common place.

As part of the celebration we are making people aware that there are treatments available for OAB and campaigning against the current reductions in public toilets.

Need to Pee card

WCW2019 is an opportunity to share The Urology Foundation's Need to Pee card. The wallet-sized card is designed to help those living with urinary incontinence to gain quick access to a toilet when the urge comes. The card can help explain the circumstance and quickly avoid any embarrassing situation. If you suffer from incontinence or other bladder conditions our Need to Pee card could give you the confidence to enjoy life, knowing that when you need to you can access the closest toilet when out and about. 

Need to Pee card

For your card today we ask for nominal donation of £2 to cover the cost of postage and package. You can do this through our donate page and in the 'I am donating because' section let us know that you would like a Need to Pee card.

If you are a medical professional and would like to offer the Need to Pee card to your patients please email the team or call us on 020 7713 9538.

Please note, that while we hope the card will allow quick access to a toilet it will be at the discretion of the establishment.
