Janet Wootton

I’m a registered nurse and midwife and have worked for the NHS for 35 years.

Working as a school health nurse enabled me to gain the relevant experience to become an enuresis specialist nurse. I was responsible for developing an integrated Paediatric Bowel & Bladder service for York NHS Trust. This service provides nurse-led clinics in York and the surrounding areas for children and young people with daytime and night time wetting, dysfunctional voiding and recurrent urinary tract infections and constipation.

I have recently moved roles and now work as the Deputy Clinical Nurse Specialist – Paediatric Bladder Services at the Evelina Children’s Hospital in London (Guy’s and St Thomas’ NHS Foundation Trust). This is broadening my experience enormously due to the number and complexity of the issues faced on a daily basis.

I enjoy singing, ballroom dancing, swimming and walking our dog Holly. My husband Chris and I have three grown up children and one grandchild.
