A nation of bedwetters

I have thought as much for some years, and here is the proof:

Baroness Tonge asked Her Majesty's Government:

How much was spent in each of the past five years by the NHS on (a) dressings and chemical reagents for incontinent patients, and (b) appliances for incontinent patients.

The Parliamentary Under-Secretary of State, Department of Health (Lord Darzi of Denham): Information is not collected on the condition for which a prescription is issued.

Information on the total net ingredient cost of all dressings and incontinence appliances dispensed in the community in England is in the following table. These include dressings and appliances prescribed for reasons other than incontinence. Chemical reagents are not separately identifiable.

YearDressings Net ingredient cost £(000s)Incontinence appliances Net ingredient cost £(000s)

2002

123,620.6

34,309.4

2003

138,711.9

34,660.6

2004

151,354.8

35,490.8

2005

163,960.8

36,650.2

2006

168,590.3

38,747.8


No word on funding to cover the cost of dealing with verbally incontinent, no - let's call a spade a spade - anti-Semitic members of the Lords.

Now why on earth would anyone want to know this? Am I missing something?
