Stomach, Bowel and Bladder Problems

Stomach, Bowel and Bladder Problems

The Urgent Care Centre provides treatment for a wide range of stomach, bowel, liver, kidney and bladder problems. We have access to several hundred specialists and once our initial investigations and treatments are completed we can arrange the most appropriate next step – either reassurance, GP follow-up, specialist review or urgent admission to the Princess Grace or any assocated HCA hospital for more specialist imaging, treatment or surgery if required.

At the Urgent Care Centre we can deal with a variety of issues within this category – we are happy to see anyone over the age of 16 with any non-life threatening symptoms related to their digestive system or urinary tract.

Some of the common abdominal symptoms our patients present with include;

  • Abdominal pain
  • Bloating
  • Nausea and vomiting
  • Diarrhoea and constipation
  • Fevers
  • Jaundice
  • Loss of appetite
  • Rectal bleeding

Some of the common urinary issues include,

  • Pain on passing urine (dysuria)
  • Haematuria (blood in the urine)
  • Increased urinary frequency or urgency
  • Urinary retention or poor urinary flow
  • Lower back/loin/kidney pain

A typical visit to the UCC will include a detailed history and examination from the doctor who will then perform or arrange the required urgent tests, such as urine dip, blood test, and imaging – such as ultrasound, x-ray, CT or MRI scan. If your condition is found to be more serious, if we are unable to uncover a suitable diagnosis, or you are still concerned we can arrange same-day referral to the appropriate specialist.
