School Nursing Enuresis Service

Your child may been referred to us by your GP or paediatrician to assess their continence needs and develop a plan of support that works for them and for you.

Achieving control of bladder and bowel function is a normal part of development for most children and young people. Some children and young people need more help than most to achieve full control and some will need on-going support to be as independent as possible in this area.

Access to this service is open to those who live in Hillingdon, have a Hillingdon GP or attend a Hillingdon school.
