Abstract
Aim: To consider the currently available knowledge and understanding of the symptom of urgency. Materials & Methods: Each faculty member reviewed the literature base of a different aspect of urgency and along with their personal clinical experience provided a base of evidence for discussion. Results: This overview summarises relevant published literature and the current clinical experience of the authors. Discussion: Whilst the mechanisms producing the sensation of urgency are still not fully understood and we are working within a definition that may complicate measurement and treatment, our pressing need is to effectively manage our patients for whom the practical nature of urgency can be all too apparent. Conclusion: Health care professionals have an important role to play today in helping to alleviate the widespread problem of urgency and its consequences.
