Charity PromoCon renamed as Bladder and Bowel UK

The charitable continence service, PromoCon, has changed its name to Bladder and Bowel UK. The service, established over 20 years ago, is the only UK national helpline service providing information and support for adults and children with bladder and bowel dysfunction, their carers and the professionals who support them. The name change comes in a bid to make the service easier to find for anyone seeking support for bladder and bowel issues. 

With an expert team of nurse specialists and product advisors, Bladder and Bowel UK provides clinical and product advice, signposting to additional support services, training, consultancy and much more.

Karen Irwin, nurse specialist and manager of the newly named Bladder and Bowel UK service, said: ‘I am delighted at the change of name; it is a landmark moment for the charity and will ensure the service is much more accessible for people living with bladder and bowel conditions as well as medical professionals and the wider healthcare community.’ 

Bladder and Bowel UK is part of the wider charitable organisation, Disabled Living, and provides information about services, practical solutions and equipment advice for those who need it. 

A helpline is available for patients, health care professionals and anyone who requires further information or support. Call Bladder and Bowel UK on 0161 607 8219 or visit the website on www.bladderandboweluk.co.uk
