King’s Mill Hospital has been given a regional grant to help women with urinary problems such as incontinence.
From the end of March, women referred by their GPs to see a urogynaecologist consultant at King’s Mill for a suspected urinary condition will be given a personal assessment questionnaire before their consultation. Patients can choose to fill this in at home or with a specialist nurse.
The grant of seven thousand pounds from NHS East Midlands Innovation Fund has been used to purchase administrative and electronic equipment. It is thought that the outcome will be improved patient waiting times, assessment and treatment.
