BBc for people who have MS - a free course based in Bristol and surrounding areas

Bladder and Bowel issues in MS are some of the most difficult symptoms to deal with so we have created a Bladder and Bowel course (BBc) to offer information and advice on how to manage symptoms.

The course is delivered by Carole Copestake our Continence Nurse Educator at MS Research. Carole has worked in Neurology since 1997, working as an MS research nurse on several clinical trials, she was appointed the first MS Specialist Nurse in Bristol in December 2000. Carole left her role as an MS Nurse April 2016 and now works with MS patients and those with other neurological conditions as a continence advisor.

This course is free of charge and open to anyone who has MS and would like to know more about bladder and bowel health. The course is currently running at our MS Meeting Point in The Vassall Centre in Fishponds, Bristol. We can, however, run the course in Bath and North East Somerset, Gloucestershire and South Gloucestershire provided that a suitable venue is available. The course can run over two half days or one whole day depending on which is preferred a maximum of 6 attendees is ideal.

If you would like further information or would be interested in arranging a BBc in your area please call 0117 9586986 or email
