Incontinence: Children

Volume 498: debated on Monday 26 October 2009

To ask the Secretary of State for Health what plans his Department has made for children’s continence services in the next five years. (295468)

The Department has not made specific new plans for children’s continence services.

The National Service Framework for Children, Young People and Maternity Services (the NSF) included guidance on the importance of joined up continence services for children and young people.

In October 2007 the Department published a Continence Exemplar. This was one in a series of exemplar journeys (patient pathways), illustrating key themes in the NSF and is available on the Department’s website at:
