Welcome to the UKCS

The United Kingdom Continence Society is a multidisciplinary group of medical and allied health practitioners clinicians from all areas connected with urinary and faecal continence. The Society exists to improve standards, promote training and encourage research and exchange of information in continence care.

Originally founded in 1994 as ICS-UK, a UK branch of the International Continence Society, the first meeting was held in Bristol, under the chairmanship of Professor Paul Abrams. The society has since grown to over 400 members. These include specialist nurse practitioners, physiotherapists, care of the elderly physicians, clinical physicists, GP’s, urology and urogynaecologiy consultants and their trainees. The Society continues to host an annual research meeting every spring which is open to members and non-members. This provides a platform for participants to present their work in continence research and developing treatments in a friendly and constructive environment.

UKCS is keen to promote knowledge and understanding of incontinence to a wider public, including patients and those responsible for the formulation of healthcare policy. We are active in the field of raising standards in continence care. The Society offers certification in Urodynamics and in support of this host courses on Urodynamics around the UK. We aim to support our members with access to research grants plus bursaries for attendance at the Annual Meeting. This is financed through the proceeds of the Annual Meeting.

Please take the time to browse the website and read the Minimum Standards in Continence Care and Urodynamic practice in the UK as well as our recent newsletters and snippets from previous annual meetings.
