Just Can’t Wait Card

Several organisations do a version of the “Just Can’t Wait Card”. You can show these in shops, pubs, restaurants or entertainment venues and ask to use their facilities.  This doesn’t guarantee access to the toilet. However, using a widely recognised card has proven to help.

Some of these organisations have a charge for the card, while some are free. Here are some of the options:

Bladder & Bowel UK – Just Can’t Wait Card

Bladder & Bowel Community – Just Can’t Wait Card (also offers a digital card)

The IBS Network – Can’t Wait Card
