Level 1 Assessment

A Level 1 assessment involves the first stage of helping to identify any bladder and bowel problems, ruling out constipation or a urinary tract infection, then signposting to the GP for assessment and/or treatment.

We know that 95 per-cent of continence problems are caused by constipation so it’s important this is identified and treated effectively.

First line advice is offered around good drinking, a healthy diet, toileting routines all important factors in promoting a healthy bladder and bowel, preventing continence problems from developing.
