PCF attends report launch in Parliament

The PCF was pleased to attend the parliamentary launch of the report ‘It happens to me too‘ on 28th February 2018, which aims to break down the barriers faced by children and young people with bladder and bowel issues. The report featured contributions from the PCF, ERIC: The Children’s Bowel & Bladder Charity, the University of Bristol, Bladder and Bowel UK and Coloplast on the impact of continence problems on young people’s social and educational experiences, and the event was addressed by a young person and a parent with experience of these issues.

Hosted with the kind support of the Chair of the All Party Parliamentary Group on Continence Care, Rosie Cooper MP, the PCF found it useful to network with parliamentarians, clinicians and service users with a common interest in this often-neglected area of children’s health, and look forward to working with these partners in the future.
