If you need help in a crisis during Coronavirus pandemic outside office hours please contact your GP or visit NHS 111.

Continence Prescribing Service

All patients registered with South Nottinghamshire GP practices who need prescriptions for continence appliances will be enrolled in the service. We will be responsible for issuing repeat prescriptions for continence appliances.

GP practices will no longer deal with requests for prescriptions for continence appliances from appliance contractors, pharmacies or patients. Items such as catheters, drainage bags and external sheath drainage systems will now be prescribed by the Continence Prescription Service.

This service will review and monitor all patients regularly and prescribe all continence products accordingly, ensuring that service users receive a timely, efficient, and tailored prescribing service according to their needs.
