A comprehensive information guide for Ostomates

Welcome to our information pages. Using the links on the right you will be able to find out more about life with a colostomy. We offer hints and tips on travel, irrigation, keeping fit as well as how to deal with problematic stomas and how to obtain our Tidings magazine on a regular basis.

Our aim is to offer you practical and emotional advice on the everyday trials of being a colostomate. 'Read my Story' are articles written by ostomates, who have been through illness and are now living life with a stoma. With the help of our volunteers, the ostomate community and healthcare professionals we hope to give you the support you may need in adjusting to your new way of life.

The quick links will take you to our literature and factsheets which are available for you to download or contact us and we will post out to you. Also there is a comprehensive A-Z Glossary, covering all the terms used on the website along with an explanation.
