Stoma care

With the help of our specialist nurses, you can receive the stoma care you need in the privacy and comfort of your home, without needing to visit hospital.

A stoma is an opening made by a surgeon, usually on your abdomen, involving either your bladder or bowel. These are also known as a colostomy, an ileostomy or a urostomy, depending on which part of the bladder or bowel is involved.

An opening through your trachea can also be categorised as a stoma, although these are less common.

Our nurses, including stoma therapists, can help you:

  • understand how to care for your stoma
  • solve any issues that arise
  • learn what other resources are available to you in the community.
