The Paediatric Continence Service helps children who have long standing issues with soiling (encopresis) or wetting (enuresis). These issues are not uncommon and can occur alone or in combination.
Soiling and wetting can be extremely frustrating and embarrassing for children and their family. It can lead to struggles at home, in school, in friendships and with emotions, behaviour and mental health. Children experiencing issues with continence can be more active, social, happy and independent when they have a management plan that works for them.
