STEPS (Stoma Essex Patient Support) is a Patient Support Group for Stoma Patients, run by patients for patients. They work very closely with the STOMA Nurses at Basildon Hospital.
They will be holding an Open Day for all Stoma Patients and their Families on Sunday 9th June at St. Margarets Church, Stanford-le-Hope from 11am to 3pm.
All welcome. Product suppliers, Ileostomy Association UK, Colostomy UK and the Stoma Nurses from Basildon Hospital will all be in attendance. Refreshments will also be served.
For Stoma Patients, having a Stoma is both life saving and life changing. It is not something they choose to have. The options really are stoma or coffin.
