Patients invited to care event

Have your say

A STOMA care event will offer the chance for patients to chat to specialists and pick up information.

Patients who have attended the stoma care department at Barnsley Hospital are invited to an information event on Thursday, September 22.

Patients, family and friends will have the chance to talk to nurse specialists and look at products that could support them.

The event is at Barnsley Hospital Social Club between 10am and 2pm.

A stoma is an opening, either natural or surgically created.

Shara Dickinson, clinical nurse specialist for stoma care at Barnsley Hospital, said: “It will give patients the chance to chat with others who have had the same or similar experiences.”.
