"Valued as a person, given good advice to cope"

About: Locala Community Partnerships CIC / Continence advisory service

(as the patient),

For quite a while before I visited the GP, I had been visiting the loo more and more frequently.

There was no infection, but that didn't solve my problem. So I was referred to the Eddercliffe clinic.

I was valued as a person, given good advice to cope.

Thanks for your post.

Having to visit the loo to pass urine more often (frequency) is a common sign of an infection. Your GP or practice nurse can do a simple test to check for infection. We see many patients who have frequency. There are often simple changes you can make that help to get your bladder back under control and it sounds as if the advice you have been given was helpful.

Best wishes for your continued improvement
