Paediatric Continence Service (Bexley) Bexley


We are having to alter some of our services in response to the demands that Coronavirus is creating. This means that we may have less staff and will be unable to continue to provide services in the way we usually do. Therefore, we may need to do the following:

  • We may carry out consultations via phone or video call
  • The frequency of our visits for your care might be reduced
  • If the care you receive is not essential, it might be stopped for the time being.

We will speak with you about any new arrangements we need to put in place. We will inform any other people involved in your care of any changes made. 

We would like to thank you for your understanding and cooperation at this time. 

The service is available for Children and young people aged 5-18 with a Bexley GP who have bladder and / or Bowel incontinence.

The service will provide 2 clinics per week at Erith Health Centre. They will offer specialist assessment and management of continence issues including:

  • Public health advice on diet, fluid intake, sleep patterns and routines pertaining to achieving continence
  • Enuresis
  • Daytime wetting
  • Constipation
  • Soiling
  • Diagnostics including bladder scanning
  • Provision of a range of treatments including bed alarms and medication
  • Referral to Community Paediatrics if needed.

How to access this service:

Referrals will be accepted from parents, GPs, Health Professionals, schools, Social Services and are accessed via email to

Continence Drop in`s during COVID-19 restrictions

Due to covid-19 restrictions, we are unable to offer a drop in service so we are changing this to a phone call drop-in service.

Please email, or call 0208 319 9973 and leave a message with your child’s name, date of birth, and a brief summary of what you need support with and your contact details. Our Paediatric continence advisor will make contact with you.

Oxleas Patient Experience survey

The Oxleas Patient Experience survey gives you the opportunity to feedback on the care and treatment you have received. We also encourage your friends, family and carers to also provide feedback. Hearing your views gives us a better understanding of the needs of our patients, families and carers which helps us to make sure that we are providing a good standard of care. 

The short survey only takes a few minutes to complete and you can provide a written comment explaining what you think is working well and what is not. The Patient Experience team will collect the results of the surveys and these are shared with the relevant departments and management teams. This helps us to shape our services to continually improve the quality of the care and treatment we provide.
