Urology, Bowel and Faecal Management
The new framework for Urology, Bowel and Faecal Management starts on 21 February 2020, runs for 24 months and ends on 20 February 2024. This includes a 24 month extension.
Urology products are used for surgical and medical diseases of the male and female urinary tract system and the male reproductive organs. Urology combines the management of medical conditions such as urinary tract infections and surgical conditions such as bladder or prostate cancer, kidney stones, congenital abnormalities, traumatic injuries and stress incontinence.
Bowel and Faecal management products are used for ensuring the safe and effective management of faecal waste and protection of the skin of patients with faecal related issues who unfortunately cannot control their own bodily functions.
