The Continence and Pelvic Rehabilitation Service is a multi-disciplinary service which is based in the community. It provides specialist continence assessment, investigations, treatment and support to residents of Newham from the age of five who have bladder, bowel or pelvic floor dysfunction. There is also specialist assessment and treatment for women with pregnancy related pelvic girdle pain. Clients are seen in clinics, their own homes, schools, and day-care facilities. The service also provides educational support on the promotion and management of incontinence to medical, non-medical professionals, clients and carers, through training programmes, exhibitions, other health events and literature. The service also manages and oversees the continence products provision supplied to clients living in the community and residential homes in the borough of Newham.

 Children and young adults between the ages of 5-19 years with additional needs are also provided with specialist support, advice and treatment. The service is a borough wide community service located at East Ham Care Centre.

 The service provides:

  • Individual specialist assessment
  • Diagnostic investigations
  • Treatment and support in the clinic
  • Joint home visits – for people with more complex difficulties who need to be assessed at home
  • Education and advice to individuals and professionals on up to date methods of maintaining and promoting continence
  • A telephone advisory service to clients and healthcare professionals. Callers will be contacted within 24 hours

 Who is the service available to?

  • Children over the age of 5 years who have special needs.
  • Adults residing in Newham either in their own home or in a residential care home.
  • Education for schools, the local Community, all health professionals and voluntary organisations.

The service has developed a user-group to ensure we listen to patient feedback and service developments are led by patients. The continence specialist nurse has developed a monthly prostate cancer support group which has been very successful supporting men following diagnosis and treatment.

The clinic at East Ham Care Centre has been renamed “The Eneberi Clinic” in recognition of Maureen Eneberi, the nurse that pioneered the service.
