ENGLAND - WEST MIDLANDS







The Outlook group is a support group for all patients with a stoma - colostomates, ileostomates

and urostomates.  It is supported by the Bowel Care Team from the University Hospital of North Staffordshire, and the president is consultant, Mrs. Christine Hall, ChM. FRCS.  The support

group covers the areas of North Staffordshire and Cheshire, and friends and partners are

welcome to attend any event.


Several of the group’s members are trained volunteers, and work under the supervision of the

Bowel Care Team of the University Hospital of North Staffordshire.  The volunteers provide support

and advice to newly-diagnosed, ostomy patients, their family and carers, either at home, during

their hospital stay or with a friendly chat on the telephone.


The group meets quarterly, when there is a speaker and the opportunity to chat and have a good

social time.  Topics cover a wide area, including local interest, travel and voluntary groups to various medical subjects by staff from the University Hospital of North Staffordshire.  Usually, one of the  members of the Bowel Care Team will be present to update ostomates on stoma topics, and also

in case anyone wants a private chat.


For more information on this support group, please telephone Moira Hammond

on 07788 402 195 or 07788 107 937.

OUTLOOK







The Shropshire B.O.T.s support group (Bums On Tums) meet on the second Thursday of

each month at 2 p.m. in the Memorial Hall, Smithfield Street, Oswestry, Shropshire, SY11 2EG.


At their meetings, they


 Socialise with other ostomates,

share experiences,

pass on practical hints and tips,

find out about the newest items on offer from suppliers,

have a natter with a cup of tea or coffee and a biscuit,

have talks on a variety of subjects.


They are looking for new members - both men and women - so if any ostomates are interested in

joining the group, they would love to meet you.


Further details of the support group or the meetings can be obtained by telephoning

Irene Constable on 01691 238 357 or Carole O’Ryan on 01691 671 624, or alternatively email ireneconstable@phonecoop.coop.
