About the Team

The Stoma Care department is based at St Peter's Hospital. We cover Ashford Hospital and the following areas of the community:
We play a central role in the multidisciplinary treatment and care of Colorectal and Urological patients, undergoing stoma surgery. The team members provide highly skilled, individualised, ongoing nursing care to all in and outpatients, both pre and post-operatively.

The team provides:

Comprehensive inpatient care, outpatient appointments in nurse led clinics, telephone advice and home visits. We also provide education for carers, families and members of the multidisciplinary team within the trust and in the community.

We are also able to provide advice and information about many lifestyle issues related to ostomists.

Referrals to us can be made from healthcare professionals, family members or self referral.
