Urinary incontinence in neurological disease

21st September 2012 by Louise Hudman

This guideline outlines the urological problems commonly associated with neurological disease. Most of this is familiar stuff. I will highlight things that stick-out or are new.

Remember that urological problems can be associated with bowel problems and sexual problems too and that these can cause social problems (such as carer stress) as well as physical problems such as recurrent UTI and renal impairment.

UTI – if assessing for UTI in someone with a catheter – do not take a bag sample to test as they will frequently show colonisation without infection – get a sample direct from the catheter.

"Work as GP locum provides me both flexibility and autonomy together with great job satisfaction. However, there are some complexities one needs to address in starting out and doing everything right.

I've generally found answers to any issues I've had on the NASGP website – an excellent repository of very relevant information. The blog and magazines alone are almost worth the small costs of membership. The fact that NASGP is run by motivated fellow GPs gives me confidence in their guidance and advice.

LocumDeck makes my running things as a self-employed GP almost effortless - I don't think I would want to work without it. Invoicing is streamlined and the website is very user-friendly. After a busy week at work, the last thing you want is to spend hours on business admin. LocumDeck is a real timesaver.
