Bladder and Bowel Latest

We've just received this update from Brigitte at the Ealing Parent Carer Forum on their progress with the Paediatric Bladder and Bowel Service in Ealing.

"We have heard from the CCG (Clinical Commissioning Group) that they have issued increased funding for an assessor and admin support to NW London NHS Trust as a temporary solution until all parties (the CCG, The NHS Trust and the Local Authority) agree a more substantive solution. The NHS Trust is training an individual to ensure all processes are complied with and is planning for assessments to start soon.
We have been promised an update on a more permanent solution soon and will continue to chase this.

We have also heard from a parent who has indeed been contacted by a lady called Amena to arrange a home visit for a re-assessment of the child who had outgrown the previous size nappies. The phone number to contact given was:
Tel: 020 8383 5749 

The contact address for the service remains the same: Mattock Lane Health Centre, 78 Mattock Lane, Ealing W13 9NZ.

I hope you find this helpful. I would also be grateful if you could let us know any changes to the service from your view. If our discussions with them have led to this additional funding enabling the NHS Trust to re-assess children and provide the service that would indeed be great news. But we would need to hear from more parents to be sure of that."
