Women’s Health Concern
Women’s Health Concern (WHC) provides an independent service to advise, reassure and educate women of all ages about their health, wellbeing and lifestyle concerns, to enable them to work in partnership with their own medical practitioners and health advisers. We offer unbiased information – by telephone, email, in print, online and through conferences, seminars and symposia.
Bladder problems are not a subject that is openly discussed, hence there is a general lack of public knowledge on what it is like to have a Mitrofanoff. Mitrofanoff Support offer emotional support and reassurance to anyone who may be about to have, or already has a Mitrofanoff and the people closest to them. It is important that you take control of your medical condition and not allow it to control you.
