Children's continence nursing service

Child continence
Who we are

The Children`s Continence service is a specialist NHS service that offers advice and support for children who have issues around continence in Derby. This may include bed-wetting, daytime wetting, constipation and soiling and delayed toilet training.

The small team presently comprises of two specialist nurses and a nursery nurse.  

Referral process

Referrals to the service are taken from school nurses, health visitors, GPs, and both hospital and community paediatricians. Once a referral has been received an appointment is offered. Most consultations happen within a clinic environment however additional support can be offered when possible in the home or school environment. 

If you feel that you or your child could benefit from the support of our continence nurses, please contact one of the above in order for them to make a referral into the service.

We have provided some information leaflets and links to other organisations on this page that you may find useful.
