Children's Continence Service
The Children's Continence service team consists of trained
nurses and a nursery nurse who are all experienced in children's
continence issues. We are based at Charlestown health centre and
can be contacted by Telephone on 741 2030 or Fax 741 2029. We work
Mon - Fri 8.30am - 4.30pm, not bank holidays. We hold clinics at
various health centres in the city and also see some children in
school or at home depending on their needs.
We provide evidence based continence assessments to children
from age 11yr to 16yrs (up to their 19th
birthday if they have special needs) with continence
problems, identifying the most appropriate care pathway for the
child, implementing and evaluating the care.
We see children who have problems with:
- Daytime wetting
- Night time wetting
- Children not toilet trained for their bowels due to behavioural
- Children not toilet trained due to a physical or learning
- Children who aren't able to become toilet trained and who need
- Chronic constipation
Children can refer themselves, or be referred by their parent or
a health care professional with the child or parents' consent. The
child should have a Manchester G.P. Referrals from health care
professionals to be made via the CCS1 Children and Young
People's Service referral form, please email referrals to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Referrals are triaged each morning and afternoon.
