Regional Education Days

Our Regional Education days provide an opportunity for Ostomates to meet and support and care about each other. Speakers include Stomal Therapy Nurses and Association representatives and a fellow ostomate to provide a patient perspective. With plenty of time to ask questions, it’s an excellent way to learn more about your association and gain useful information and tips to help you manage your stoma.

Anyone with a Colostomy, Ileostomy, Urostomy or external pouch procedure is invited to attend, as are family, friends, carers and health professionals.

These days are also attended by supplier company representatives and provide an opportunity for members to find out more about the products available under the scheme and additional products available for purchase.
