The Colorectal and Stoma Care Service is primarily a specialist advice, support and counselling service.
The aim is to provide a seamless service with an holistic approach through:
- Providing support through the care pathway to patients and carers
- Providing consistency in knowledge and information using best practice and the latest research for patients and their families with colorectal disease, from diagnosis to discharge and follow-up
- Identifying gaps in existing service and continually striving to improve
- The service providing ward-based teaching and review of stoma and colorectal patients at Royal Lancaster Infirmary and Furness General Hospital.
