North Essex stoma support group

 

The stoma team here at Colchester Hospital work with our local NESS – North Essex stoma support group.

This year we are holding 4 meetings, which are usually on a Friday evening or a Saturday afternoon at either Colchester Hospital or a church hall in Clacton.  Between 30 – 60 people normally attend the meetings.

The events include different activities such as a quiz, bingo, afternoon tea, a talk on the history of stoma care, dietician talks and Chair Yoga!

We hold raffles at each event and in the last year we have supported the Ileostomy, colostomy, urostomy association, the Time Garden appeal and CoHoc.

We also arrange coffee mornings for each of our patient groups.
