Colorectal and Stoma Care

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.
