Stoma Care

The Stoma Care department at St Mark's and Northwick Park Hospital provides specialist nursing care to patients with a stoma, ileo-anal pouch or enterocutaneous fistula.

A number of these patients have intestinal failure and require specialist nursing input to manage their complex abdominal wounds and appliances. Patients are seen in a variety of settings including the ward, surgical out-patient clinics, nurse-led clinics and home visits for local patients. The department will take referrals from patients, stoma care nurses or the medical profession. The department runs a number of in-house study days for ward nurses in the management of patients with a stoma, ileo anal pouch or fistula as well as external days such as the Community Nurse Study Day and Ileo Anal Pouch Study Day.
