Prostate Cancer UK

I recently met with Prostate Cancer UK and PHS group to discuss the need for proper disposal facilities in gents toilets.

There’s a taboo around discussing male incontinence, and far too many men suffer indignity and discomfort when dealing with the lack of facilities to dispose of their incontinence products.

One in eight men will be diagnosed with prostate cancer, and some will experience incontinence as a side effect of their treatment. As many as 60% of men who have a radical prostatectomy may experience urinary incontinence.

A small change - including some disposal bins in gents loos - would greatly help men who experience incontinence to dispose of their products easily, hygienically and with dignity, offering them the opportunity to live a better quality of life, free from embarrassment, stress, or shame.
