Incontinence

Volume 457: debated on Thursday 8 March 2007

To ask the Secretary of State for Health what recent changes have been made to the provision of urinary and faecal (a) appliances and (b) services on the NHS; for what purpose in each case; what assessment she has made of the potential impact on users; and if she will make a statement. (121755)

We are not aware of any recent changes made to the provision of urinary and faecal appliances and services on the national health service. All health bodies are expected to follow the guidelines contained in Good Practice on Continence Services. These guidelines set out a model of good practice to help achieve more responsive, equitable and effective continence services.
