The aim is to provide a seamless service with an holistic approach through:
- Provide 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.
- Service also provides ward based teaching and review of stoma and colorectal patients at Royal Lancaster Infirmary and Furness General Hospital.
