We see inpatients that have had a recently formed stoma, patients that are inpatients with long standing stomas and have a stoma clinic for troubleshooting concerns with long standing ostomists. We also look after patients who have had bowel resections for cancer and their on-going care.
We provide community support for these patients, as well as seeing them in endoscopy at point of suspicion of a cancer, at consultant clinic appointment to break bad news and in follow up after resection.
WHAT YOU MIGHT SEE/DO AT THE UNIT: Every day is different, but you will have the opportunity to see ileostomists and colostomists and help care for the stomas of these patients.
