Incontinence: Children

Volume 477: debated on Thursday 19 June 2008

To ask the Secretary of State for Health if he will review the progress that has been made towards achieving an integrated community-based paediatric continence service as set out in the Children’s National Service Framework. (210530)

The National Service Framework for Children, Young People and Maternity Services (the NSF) is a 10-year programme to shape the way local authorities and primary care trusts provide or commission services for children. Copies of the NSF are available in the Library. Increasingly, we will judge the work of the authorities involved on the degree to which they have met the standards set out in the NSF. However, it would not be appropriate to establish a formal review of the implementation of the standard on continence services half way through.
