This PSP was established in October 2006 and was originally called a 'Working Partnership'. Three overlapping subgroups of people affected by incontinence were defined as being important to the work:
- Those affected by incontinence that is idiopathic or which is a symptom or result of a condition or disease which is not acute and which is treatable in primary care. For example Stress Urinary Incontinence, Over-active Bladder, or Enuresis (bedwetting).
- Those affected by incontinence resulting from acute illness or trauma or from conditions or diseases which cause wide-ranging disabilities in addition to incontinence, whether acquired or congenital. For example as a result of prostate surgery, Spinal Cord Injury, Multiple Sclerosis, Spina Bifida, Cauda Equina Syndrome, or certain learning disabilities.
- Elderly people affected by incontinence, whether clinical or functional (ie, as a result of reduced mobility or dementia).
The Urinary Incontinence PSP Top 10 was published in November 2008.
