3% children with faecal incontinence attend Paediatric Outpatients – referrals now to clinics = no extra funding ( Chichester and Worthing)

  • We offer treatment and behavioural management interventions

Home visits/TAC/meetings in school/ etc.

Production of literature, guidelines, assessment tools/training

Uniformity of children’s assessment form/referral to service form and re-assessment for products.

At current training being given out for use by all areas

  • Working with Education re policy for management in schools.

  • Guidelines on practice for day/night wetting and faecal incontinence for community practitioners
  • Guidelines for school nurse led enuresis clinics
  • Leaflets for day/night wetting/faecal incontinence/medication/toilet training
  • Developed new continence assessment forms for products and reassessment of products for agencies to use = for all over county = lack of disparity for forms
