Family Nursing & Home Care (FNHC) have experienced professionals who work with patients who have a stoma. There are many reasons why a patient may need a stoma, which can be temporary or permanent. A stoma involves an opening in the abdomen which is connected to the digestive or urinary system in order to allow waste to be safely diverted from a patient’s system. 

In Jersey, unless a patient has a urinary stoma, the stoma care nurse and the ward nurses will help maintain a patient’s stoma for the first three months of treatment. After that, one of our specialist nurses will be on hand to provide ongoing support.

At FNHC we understand how life changing a stoma operation can be and our expert nurses work with our patients to show them how to clean their stomas and how to change stoma bags. They also give advice on how patients can manage their stoma at home, making them aware of the different options available, with dignity at the core of our service.

When you need us, we will be there.
