Colorectal Cancer / Stoma Nursing Team

The colorectal / stoma nursing team provide care and support for all patients diagnosed with a colorectal cancer, and all patients who have a stoma. We see cancer patients from the point of diagnosis, right through to surgery, oncological treatments and throughout their cancer journey, also providing family and carer support. We see stoma patients pre-operatively, following surgery and then regularly both in nurse led clinics in the hospital and the community or at home if necessary. We provide telephone follow up clinics for cancer patients following treatment and also throughout palliation. We co-ordinate support groups, for both cancer and stoma patients and provide health education open days. We provide teaching to the health professionals within the hospital, including student nurses and allied health professionals, also running a link nurse group. We teach community health care workers within health centres and also attend nursing / residential homes. We co-ordinate health promotional activities at various points throughout the year.
