Nutritional Advice

We are working with Laura Clark, a registered dietitian with over 20 years experience in nutrition and dietetics. You can ask her a question and we will publish the most commonly asked questions on the 'you and your diet' pages.

Keeping fit and healthy

As your body begins to heal following surgery, you may be thinking about a more active lifestyle. Whether it be resuming sporting activities you previously enjoyed, or opportunities to take up a new one, this section is full of information to help answer your questions, and encourage physical activity.

The Secure Start service gives you access to a wealth of information including clinical support and advice. Secure Start nurses are available to help you with clinical advice regarding anything stoma related, and will support you with any questions you may have.
