World Continence Week (WCW) is an international health campaign to raise awareness of incontinence related issues. This year, it takes place from 20 – 26 June.
You may be aware that there are between 3 and 6 million people in the UK with some degree of urinary incontinence, and pre-Covid, urinary tract infections (UTIs) were the largest cause of unplanned admissions into acute care. Despite the prevalence of urinary incontinence, unfortunately there is still so much stigma attached to the issue. We hope you will join us in raising awareness of these important issues during World Continence Week.
