Additional Information for Health Professional

Full service description

The Community Paediatric Continence Service is an excellent specialist service for children, young people, parents, carers and relatives.

With any service like this, there is a tendency to focus on pad provision for patients and not treatment, this service is different and ensures that patients get extensive treatment to try and help resolve and improve conditions rather than just relying on pad provision.

The first level input for general advice and support for bladder and bowel issues is provided by Health Visitors and school nurses. This includes advice about toilet training, lifestyle, healthy eating, obesity and managing behaviours.  The second level input provided by this service is the specialist continence assessment and advice which includes treatment, behavioural advice and medication advice to GP’s.

Please click the links below for an outline of level 1 and level 2:

Level 1

Level 2 

What does the service provide?

The aim of the service is to provide a locality based multi-disciplinary team approach offering assessment, diagnosis, treatment and management for families with a child or young person with continence problems.

The care is reinforced through regular follow up appointments and frequent contact by phone.
