Dear Patient,

We have received your referral to Women’s Health Physiotherapy (part of the Musculoskeletal Assessment & Rehabilitation Service). We are able to offer a new initiative called the Healthy Pelvic Floor Virtual Class whilst you wait.

What is the Healthy Pelvic Floor Class?

This is a virtual class for people with symptoms of urinary incontinence or pelvic organ prolapse, who have been referred by their GP or consultant. It is run by a Senior Physiotherapist in the Women’s Health Team.

The class is 1.5 hours long. Is it run on Microsoft Teams.

What the class covers:

  • Anatomy of pelvic floor
  • Explanation of why incontinence and prolapse happen
  • How to do pelvic floor exercises (and common mistakes!)
  • Ways to manage/improve symptoms

When Is it?

Thursday at 5pm OR Friday at 10.15am on alternative weeks (choose 1)

What Do I Need to Access It?

We will be using Microsoft Teams.

You can use a laptop, desktop PC, smartphone or other smart device with a working microphone and camera.

You will be sent an email with the link before the class.

What Happens After the Class?

  • We ask you try to follow the advice in the class for 4-6 weeks. It can take this long (and sometimes longer) to see an improvement in your symptoms from following the advice.
  • If you would like to see a member of the Women’s Health Team afterwards for a face to face appointment, please contact 01273 242054 (option 2).

How Do I Book onto the Healthy Pelvic Floor Class?

Please call us on 01273 242054 (option 2) to arrange this or to answer any questions you may have about it.

What if I Don’t Want the Class?

You do not need to contact us if you do not want the class. We will keep you on the waiting list for a full assessment appointment. Waiting times for our service can be found on our ‘Wait Times’ page.

You can see some of our advice and self-help on our Pelvic Health webpages.
