Our stoma nursing team provide support and education to those patients who have a stoma to ensure they come to terms with this life changing surgery and lead a fulfilling life.
We run a support group at South Tyneside District Hospital approximately every 3 months and also an annual open day. If anyone would like to attend these please send us your name and address and we will send invites in the post. If you have a stoma and have any concerns please do not hesitate to contact us.

We have a stoma clinic at South Tyneside District Hospital every Thursday afternoon by appointment only. We also have a community stoma nurse who can visit patients at home which is also by appointment only.
