Sometimes you might feel like you’re the only one who still wets the bed but actually many teenagers in the UK do it! There are a variety of reasons why it can happen and lots of advice and treatments available to help you.
If you wet the bed or are worried about someone who does, please contact your school nurse or visit ERIC “The Teens Hub” for more information.

Children and young people's Bladder and Bowel service
In March 2023, Bromley Healthcare launched a new specialist nurse-led service to support children and young people with bladder and bowel conditions in Bromley.
The service will ensure that children and young people over the age of 5 who have not toilet trained or have urinary or faecal incontinence, including those with additional needs, will receive regular bladder and bowel health assessments and support for toilet training skill development and have access to an equitable service.
The Bromley Children and Young People’s Bladder and Bowel service is led by Clinical Nurse Specialists. Our Nurse specialists provide inclusive assessments, advice and education for bladder and bowel health, toilet training and ways to promote independence. This includes support for toilet training for children with additional needs, constipation, day-time wetting and night-time wetting (nocturnal enuresis).
Clinics will run over 4 days a week (Mon-Thurs) and will be available at various Bromley Healthcare sites across the borough.
The service will be available to Children and Young People aged 5-18 years registered with a Bromley GP.
Referrals will be accepted from GP/Paediatrician to firstname.lastname@example.org using single point of entry form or ROP.
