Call to tackle in­con­ti­nence

Daily Record - - NEWS -

THE Scot­tish Lib Dems have called for a na­tional strat­egy to chal­lenge the stigma sur­round­ing in­con­ti­nence.

Health spokesman Alex Cole-Hamilton wants train­ing for mid­wives and health prac­ti­tion­ers on the ben­e­fits of phys­io­ther­apy to tackle the con­di­tion as well as an aware­ness cam­paign.

He said: “The tragedy is, all too few Scots who suf­fer the con­di­tion take steps to get help and this can have a mas­sive wider im­pact in terms of de­pres­sion, anx­i­ety and so­cial iso­la­tion.”
