Children’s Continence Service
Bedfordshire Community Health Services help children and young people who have continued difficulties with continence issues (constipation, day time wetting, night time wetting etc.) who have already had support from our 0-19 team and children with complex needs with continence issues.
Stage 1 - All children should have access to www.eric.org.uk, a school nurse, health visitor or GP for basic advice and guidance on toileting problems.
Stage 2 - If needed, a referral can be made to see a specialised continence champion for any continuing difficulties.
Stage 3 - If at this stage, a referral will be made to our continence clinic, held in a variety of locations.
A 24 hour answerphone service is available on the following numbers:
Bowel and Bladder - 01234 310847
Special Needs continence - 0300 790 6894
