Ostomy Literature

Hand in Hand

Hand in Hand is a magazine which we publish twice a year, for all our stoma customers - we love to include letters, stories, poems, recipe ideas and anything else you want to share. From running the London Marathon to taking part in fashion shows - our patients have sent us some truly inspirational stories that are magnificent testament to their strength and courage and living proof that having a stoma does not need to restrict your life.

Click below to download a PDF of the latest Hand in Hand magazine. If you would like a paper copy of Hand in Hand, please call us on our Careline.


Do you have a story that you'd like to share with fellow stoma patients? Maybe you have a special birthday that deserves a mention or know somebody else that does? Please do let us know. All you have to do is email or post it to our SecuriCare freepost address:

Educational booklets

We have produced a number of educational booklets to help patients understand their stoma . These booklets are designed to be as informative as possible and can help you adjust to life with a stoma, understand what stomas are, what diet to follow with a stoma and other useful information.
