Surveillance decision

Surveillance decision

We will not update the guideline on bedwetting in under 19s.

Reasons for the decision

The majority of new evidence was found to be broadly consistent with the current recommendations. New evidence on electrical nerve stimulation and acupuncture was identified, both areas that are not covered by the current guideline. These treatments may decrease the number of wet-nights in children with nocturnal enuresis but the evidence was based on small scale studies and was considered to be insufficient to have an impact on the guideline at this time.

For further details and a summary of all evidence identified in surveillance, see appendix A.
