Stoma and internal pouch care service

What we do

We provide practical training and support to anyone who has, or may require, a bowel or urine stoma, or internal pouch as a result of colorectal surgery.

We offer impartial advice and supplies of a variety of stoma products (we are not sponsored by any manufacturing company).

Our flexible clinic system means we can often provide reviews on the same or next day, helping to prevent undue physical and psychological distress.

Services include:

  • pre-operative counselling and discussion
  • post-operative training and support
  • clinics at Warwick and Stratford hospitals
  • carer, or care home staff training
  • skin care treatment and advice
  • product advice and samples
  • travel advice
  • diet advice
  • colostomy irrigation training and support
  • stoma hernia support garment fittings
  • ileo-anal pouch support and advice
