THE delicate topic of incontinence is to be dealt with at a series of events in Huddersfield.
Staff from the GP-led primary care trusts in Huddersfield were holding roadshows at Asda and Sainsbury's today as part of National Continence Awareness Week.
The Trust's continence advisory service team, featuring three nurses and a physiotherapist, began the campaign at the Shore Head branch of Sainsbury's then morning and moved to Asda in Bradford Road this afternoon.
Leaflets were issued and sufferers learned about exercises to improve muscle control.
Details were also provided about caffeine and how it affects bladder function.
People could enter a draw to win a hamper of caffeine-free products.
* The PCTs' continence advisory service is now based at Fartown Health Centre, Spaines Road. The team's new home provides open access for the public and healthcare staff.
It will be officially opened tomorrow by Mr Kevin Holder, chief executive of Huddersfield Central and South Huddersfield Primary Care Trusts.
