No national assessment of the effect of the guidance has been made. The paediatric continence commissioning guide sets out a clear set of specifications for commissioners to follow, including for paediatric incontinence services. The Department expects local commissioners to draw on the guide in commissioning services and to keep their incontinence services under review.
