Survey results for

May/July: Bladder

Following the statistic that over 14 million people in the UK are affected by bladder problems, we undertook an extensive survey on concerns and awareness of bladder issues.

Here are the top highlights from the survey:

  • Pregnancy and post-pregnancy were the most common reasons for experiencing bladder weakness among participants
  • Around two thirds of respondents had not visited their GP regarding any bladder or urine issues, with a large proportion (78%) of people answering that they had not been diagnosed with a bladder or urine related disease or condition, despite suffering with symptoms affecting their toilet habits
  • 92% of people who struggled with a bladder problem had not taken part in any form of patient support programme. Likewise, 92% of those we surveyed said they felt there wasn’t enough regular support once they had been diagnosed
