Stomal Therapy

The service is tailored to an individual person’s needs and is provided by the surgery’s Stomal Therapy Nurse who has also had extensive colorectal surgical nursing experience.

Our Stomal Therapy Nurse, Amanda Summers enables the provision of patient and family preoperative counseling and education, advocacy as well as ongoing Stomal care and support at Colorectal Surgery as required. She liaises with the patient’s surgeon, hospital and their hospital Stomal Therapy Nurse, as well as community agencies involved in the patient’s care, thus ensuring continuity of care for the patient.
