Prescription continence products may be available to some patients on NHS prescription; however the service does not provide 'free nappies'. We provide a comprehensive individualised plan to support children to achieve continence and independence in toileting.
DISCHARGE FROM THE SERVICE
Once input and care is complete or the service input is no longer required a patient can be discharged back to universal services or the GP for ongoing support.
The service follows the patient access policy and if you fail to attend your appointment without notifying us pre the appointment date and time your child will be discharged. Further information on this can be found on the STHK website.
Discharge will also be considered if you/your child fail to engage with the service and follow the recommended plan given by professionals
