Paediatric Continence and Enuresis Service - Bexley and Greenwich

  • The Bexley and Greenwich Paediatric Continence Service helps children between the ages of five and 18 with nocturnal enuresis, daytime urgency, frequency and wetting. We also work with children with constipation.

    The service offers specialist assessment and management of continence issues including:

    • Diet, fluid intake, sleep patterns and routines relating specifically to help with continence
    • Enuresis - night-time bed-wetting  
    • Daytime wetting
    • Constipation and overflow soiling
    • Provision of a range of interventions and treatments including reward charts, bed sensors, alarms and medication
    • Bladder scanning
    • Referral to GP or Community Paediatrics where needed

    There is a continence drop-in clinic for under-fives. However, this is for advice only. Children requiring treatments will be referred to their GP or other relevant healthcare professionals.

    Continence products are provided for children and young people who are in mainstream schools within Bexley or Greenwich or who are schooled out-of-borough but still have a Bexley or Greenwich GP.

    Children who attend a special school within the boroughs of Bexley and Greenwich will be seen by the CYP Specialist School Nursing team.

    A Continence Service clinician will assess whether continence products are suitable on a case-by-case basis. Well-defined criteria help them make this decision.

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

    For details of our forthcoming drop in sessions, please see below:
