If you are going to have or have had an operation resulting in a stoma, for example, a colostomy, ileostomy or urostomy we can provide you with specialist information, support and advice.
A stoma is a section of bowel brought through an artificial opening that is made through the right or left side of a person’s abdomen. A pouch (bag) is worn over the stoma to collect waste from the body.
The Community Stoma Care Service is available to any patient who has a stoma and is registered with a GP in North Tyneside regardless of where the surgery was carried out.
