Paediatric continence service during Pandemic
The service assists parents / carers with the management of day or night wetting, and in some cases, where there are also bowel soiling habits. It is available to every child 4 - 17 years in the boroughs of City of London and Hackney. It includes the Paediatric Continence Service and the Toileting Advisory Service.
The Community Paediatric Continence Clinic accepts referrals for assessment and management of children with daytime wetting from 4 years, and with night-time wetting once they are over 5 years old. Children with constipation or faecal soiling without urinary symptoms are not seen in this clinic. The service can offer pre and post-void ultrasounds for assessment and treatment options including alarms and medication. Complex and resistant cases may be referred on to another centre for further investigations.
The Toileting Advisory Service assists parents / carers with
- Advice on bladder / bowel training
- Strategies for potty / toilet training
- Dietary guidance
- Containment products for bladder and bowel incontinence
