PCF publishes ‘a manifesto for paediatric continence services across the UK’

Following the announcement of a snap general election to be held on 8th June, the PCF has created a manifesto for improving paediatric continence services across the UK. This has been sent to Prospective Parliamentary Candidates to highlight the need to consider the provision of paediatric continence services in their local area. The manifesto outlines three key policy changes needed to improve the situation for this group of children and young people:

  • All children should have access to integrated, well-resourced paediatric continence services
  • The PCF’s Commissioning Guide should be utilised to improve the quality of services
  • Continence should be considered when making policy on childhood health, disability and education
