Has anyone had success going Private?

I'm so frustrated with my daughter just being given Laxido and told its constipation /overflow /incontence and she might grow out of it. I wondered if going private might might to lead to more help?

From my experience GP don't seem able to help. If you are not already with a paeditritian I would insist you have a referal and really push for it. I have also considered private also.

Thanks for your reply. Shes had 4 different paedriatricians. We got referred last year to a nurse who specialises in incontence as wets herself. But still haven't progressed.she has eczema too, that get infected by her 'accidents'.

We went private just to speed things up then when problems continued the private consultant referred us to an NHS consultant who is brilliant and loads of support from specialist nurses who we can ring anytime. It was worth the private consultation cost to get to the NHS quicker. Sad that that’s the case but it’s the way things are...

It was a paediatric consultant but think he specialised in bowel etc see a different NHS consultant now who is really nice and helpful but have to say I find the incontinence nurses the most helpful and informative if I need advice...
