The pelvic health physiotherapy team specialise in treating male and female patients presenting with pelvic floor dysfunction.   The team operate clinics at Malton, Scarborough, Selby and York hospitals and treat a wide variety of patients including those with:

  • Urinary incontinence (stress, urge and mixed incontinence)
  • Bowel incontinence
  • Constipation
  • Pelvic organ prolapse
  • Dyspareunia
  • Pelvic pain
  • Post-natal perineal/pelvic floor problems including 3rd and 4th degree tears
  • Ante-natal and post-natal musculoskeletal dysfunction

Group sessions:

Ante-natal back/pelvic pain groups

The team runs an informative self-help advice and exercise session for pregnant patients to help them adjust to the changes in their body during pregnancy. This group typically precedes individual assessment and treatment and is effective for approximately 80% of women. These sessions are held at Scarborough and York Hospitals.

Post-operative gynaecological surgery groups

Following major gynaecological surgery, patients will be offered the opportunity to attend a post-operative advice and information group session between approximately 4 – 8 weeks post-surgery. These sessions are held at Scarborough and York Hospitals.

The team liaise with other healthcare professionals including consultants, midwives, continence advisors and other physiotherapists.

Treatment is always individualised and is in accordance with current guidelines from  the professional network group, Pelvic Obstetric Gynaecological Physiotherapy (POGP), NICE ( and The Chartered Society of Physiotherapy (

Visiting update

To protect our patients, staff, visitors and the community, we are again restricting visitors to all our hospitals sites so please read our latest guidance for full details before coming to our hospitals.

The decision to restrict visitors during this time has been very difficult and made only after careful consideration as we witness wider social restrictions to prevent the spread of COVID-19 in light of the highly transmissible OMICRON variant.  The guidance will be reviewed regularly.
