Bowel support

At Charter we offer a range of services to help you manage your condition and get on with doing the things you love to do.

 

If you experience bowel leakage and/or chronic constipation you are not alone. Your quality of life may be significantly impacted, as aside from physical discomfort such as bloating. You may also worry about having an accident in public.

 

Going to the toilet to have a bowel movement is something most people take for granted and consider it a very private matter. So when you suddenly experience a problem with your bowels, you can feel rather isolated.
