Talk to us
Nobody likes to talk about their bladder, but when things are wrong, talking to someone with knowledge, understanding and caring is exactly what you need. Here at Bladder Health UK, we have been offering sufferers help and advice for over twenty years. During that time, we have helped thousands of people find ways to manage their condition.
The advice line is staffed from 9.30am unitl 2.30pm from Monday to Friday and if there is no-one to answer your call please do leave a message and we will call you back as soon as we can. Sometimes the lines are just busy so persevere and we will help you.
On the advice line we have an expert patient ( who has first hand experience of suffering with Interstitial Cystitis for 20 years) , a retired uro-gynaecology nurse and a specialist continence nurse - all able to offer advice and support. The calls are confidential so please give us a call - you are not alone and sometimes it helps just to share what you are going through with an understanding person.
We want to help you reach a point where your condition can be, if not cured, then managed successfully. Over the years the charity has developed a range of resources based on our extensive experience working with people like you and we know that people find them really useful.
Having the right information about your condition is vital.
Co-ordinators, Phone-Pals and Local Support Groups
Bladder Health UK operates a network of “local support groups” and “phone-pals.”
The local groups and phone- pals are a way of providing a more personal form of support to charity members. Local groups and phone- pals are run by volunteers who are usually members of the charity. Co-ordinators organise group meetings in their local area and are also a telephone support contact. This is especially helpful for newly diagnosed members who generally need more help and advice. Since the Covid pandemic we have explored holding these meetings via Zoom and this has proved to be successful and encouraged more people to join in.
The local group network and telephone support is only available to members of Bladder Health UK. When you join us, you will be put in touch with a volunteer co-ordinator.
If you would like to volunteer to run a local group or be a phone-pal, please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org. We will provide you with help and information to start your local group
