Nov 7, 2016

Our Purple Iris Award recognises outstanding stoma care and exemplary service within a Stoma Care Department or community setting.

Nominations are now open for the 2017 award, so if your team has gone above and beyond in their care for you or a family member please complete the form in Tidings and return it to us by 30 April 2017. Alternatively call our office for a form. 


We welcome nominations for stoma care teams who:

·         Deliver an exceptional level of care

·         Lead an excellent co-ordinated care package with other agencies and across a variety of health issues

·         Are innovative with their ideas to deliver outstanding patient support

A representative from the winning stoma care department will be invited to attend our Open Day dinner at Wokefield Park on Saturday 16 September 2017 when an official presentation will be made by our President.

We look forward to receiving your nominations and to hearing about the wonderful work being carried out by stoma care teams across the UK. Careful consideration will be given to all entries and we will feed back comments anonymously to all nominated teams in recognition of their invaluable efforts.
