Leanne Knox

Leanne is a continence nurse adviser. She is a registered nurse with extensive training in continence care. She works primarily at Northeast Health Wangaratta but visits our rooms twice a month to assist with urodynamic investigations.

Urodynamic testing or urodynamics is a study that assesses how the bladder and urethra are performing their job of storing and releasing urine. Urodynamic tests can help explain symptoms such as:

  • incontinence
  • frequent urination
  • sudden, strong urges to urinate but nothing comes out
  • problems starting a urine stream
  • painful urination
  • problems emptying the bladder completely
  • recurrent urinary tract infections


Our friendly reception staff have many years of experience in aiding gynecological care. They are caring, knowledgeable and are experts in confidentiality.
