Who we are
The children and young people’s continence service has two specialist nurses covering Middlesbrough and Redcar and Cleveland.
We treat children and young people who are registered with a GP within these areas.
Patients can be referred for:
- Night time bed wetting (first line of treatment is an bed wetting alarm)
- Day time wetting urgency and frequency of passing urine
- Constipation and soiling secondary to constipation
What to expect during an appointment
At appointments we discuss the continence issue in depth and a full history is taken working in partnership with the patient and their parents.
A urine sample will be taken and tested is deemed appropriate.
We will also complete a bladder scan if appropriate to establish if the bladder is fully emptying.
