Support groups

Many people find that attending a support group can help. Dotted across the country, these offer a safe and confidential environment in which to meet fellow ostomates. Some are informal ‘tea and chat’ groups. Others are more structured and have visits from stoma care nurses, hold Q & A sessions, and invite suppliers to exhibit their stoma products.
