Urinary catheters

There are times in the treatment of some illnesses and diseases where it is the best medical choice for a urinary catheter to be inserted into the bladder.

This may be temporary or permanent.

Education and care

In this unavoidable situation where a catheter has been inserted either through the urethra (IDC) or through the abdomen (SPC), receiving timely and correct education about the care of the catheter will make this experience as positive as it can be.

Access to catheter supplies

Help will also be given to help you access supplies for the care of your catheter so that purchases of unnecessary equipment is avoided.
