Continence supplies from NHS Wales

The Welsh Government is to be congratulated in terms of putting their hands up and amending key guidance concerning continence supplies.  In its recently released circular WG Guidance for the care of children and young people with continence problems (WHC/2017/044) it states that previous guidance that placed a limit of four continence pads a day per young person was ‘inconsistent with public law principles and a breach of children’s’ dignity’ (para 8).  The change results from action taken by the Cerebra Legal Entitlements and Problem-solving (LEaP) Research programme and Cerebra’s news story on this success can be accessed by clicking here.
