SCOTLAND







The Ayrshire & Arran Stoma Support Group aims to provide a forum, where colostomates,

ileostomates and urostomates can meet in a relaxed and informal environment.  The group gives support in the day-to-day life of being an ostomate, and where possible, gives practical advice and encouragement, and help through troubled times.  Ostomates, recent or not-so-recent, throughout

the Ayrshire area and beyond are all welcome.


The group holds regular meetings every two months on the first Saturday of each month, starting in February each year.  During the meetings, there is an opportunity to chat and meet other ostomates, and on many occasions, a speaker or a stoma appliance representative attends.  


  For further information, please telephone 01292 220 945, or email jimkraz@virginmedia.com.

AYRSHIRE & ARRAN STOMA SUPPORT GROUP







B.Y.O.B., Bring Your Own Bag Support Group, was set up by people with stomas for people living

in the West Lothian and Edinburgh areas, who have a colostomy, ileostomy or urostomy.  The group offers non-medical support in a relaxed setting.


Having a stoma can turn someone’s world upside down.  As well as dealing with the effects of the condition, people need to be able to meet others who are also ‘Living With An Ostomy’.  The difficulty

of having a stoma is that it is a very private matter, and some ostomates are unwilling to tell others

how they are feeling.  A support group can offer a safe and confidential environment.


 During the meetings, discussions take place on how ostomates live their daily lives as normal, whilst having a stoma.  The group believe that just because their plumbing is on the outside, it does not

mean to say they cannot live a normal life.


Meetings are held quarterly and locally - the group say that there is no need to worry about transport

or weekly commitments, and the subjects covered are varied - manufacturers showing their ostomy-related products, social events, talks on different subjects - and time for a general chat to help

one another.


For further details of the group and future meetings, please email thebrodiefamily@talktalk.net, or telephone 0131 537 1000 and ask to speak to the Stoma Care Team.

GLASGOW STOMA SUPPORT GROUP







Stoma Care And Recovery (S.C.A.R.) welcome everyone, who is living with a stoma, whether it is the actual patient, a relative or carer.  The meetings are very informal, giving everyone the opportunity to share experiences, whether good or bad.  Sometimes, they have even been known to solve a problem or two!  On occasions, the small things can be the most annoying, and probably the things, which

only another fellow ostomate can appreciate.


The group’s motto is:

We care enough to share.  


For further details of the group, please telephone Maggie on 01294 271 060 or email maggie13@sky.com.  Alternatively, telephone Rhona on 01294 557 478.
