GRANTHAM COLORECTAL SUPPORT GROUP







THE North Notts Stoma Support Group welcomes patients from the King’s Mill Hospital, Sutton in Ashfield, Nottinghamshire, and also all ostomates from the surrounding area.  The aim of the support group is to help people, who have gone through the trauma of having a stoma, to get back on track with their lives.  They are a very friendly group, who have many laughs, and they do not dwell on the negative side of having a stoma.


With this purpose in mind, the group meets on the second Saturday of the month.  The meetings

are very informal and varied.  Occasionally, there are representatives from stoma suppliers, who show

their latest products and advances in improving appliances.  Free car parking is available for the

group.


Further details can be obtained from Tore or Nicky Norman on 01773 715 460, or by emailing toreno@sky.com.

NORTH NOTTS STOMA SUPPORT GROUP







The Nottingham Colostomy, Ileostomy & Urostomy Support Group is a popular, friendly support group, which covers the Nottinghamshire  and surrounding areas - they even have some members from Derbyshire.  Members themselves call the support group - the QMC Stoma Support Group.


The group meets regularly on the third Saturday of each month. The meetings are varied, but at every meeting, there is a representative from stoma product manufacturers etc., with displays of their merchandise. At some meetings, there is also a speaker, who gives a talk on local history, general

topics, or maybe a talk from an ostomate, who has travelled with a stoma. Stoma nurses may also be

in attendance to give a talk on stoma care, or to give general ostomy advice. A cup of coffee or tea is supplied free of charge.


For further details of the support group, please contact Boyd Headlong on 0115 921 3459 or

07970 720 295.  Alternatively, email boydh@talktalk.net.

“FRIENDS” STOMA SUPPORT GROUP








Kirby Ostomy Support Group was established as a support group for all ostomates, who live within Leicestershire, i.e. for anyone with a colostomy, ileostomy or urostomy.


No one needs to feel alone.


The meetings are for those with a stoma, their partner, family member or a friend.  They offer

support to all ostomates, whether they have had surgery recently or in the past.  It provides a

platform for members, who might have problems to discuss with those who understand the

difficulties, and can hopefully advise and recommend a way forward for them.  They can also

arrange a stoma care nurse to visit, if the problem is urgent.


They hold a meeting at least once a month, usually on the third Saturday, in the Clinical Education Centre, Glenfield Hospital, Groby Road, Leicester, LE3 9QP, where parking is free for the group.  They have a variety of speakers followed by tea, coffee, biscuits and a general chat.  There are occasional organised trips to medical suppliers.


For further information, please contact  Janet Cooper on 0116 239 2844, or

email kosg2013@btinternet.com.
