Speak to a Stoma Nurse

With you every step of the way.

Qualified stoma care nurses

At SecuriCare we’re extremely proud of the service our nurses provide, making us one of the largest independent teams of specialist Stoma Care Nurses within the NHS. We’re here to help you take control of your stoma by offering support, advice and care. Our mission is to make a significant difference to the quality of your life. Wherever you are in your journey, we’ll go the extra mile, so you can go wherever life takes you.

Who can use the nurse service?

Anybody living with a stoma or preparing to have a stoma. Our nurses are on hand to answer any questions you have, via face-to-face or virtual appointments, in-clinic, in your home or online.

If you’re a user of stoma supplies, then you’re entitled to an Appliance Use Review (AUR) annually.

What is an Appliance Use Review (AUR) and what can I expect?

During an AUR you will meet with a registered nurse and be able to talk about the products you’re using and issues you may be having with them or your health. Our nurse specialist will ensure that; you are using the correct products; you know how to use them correctly; you know how to store and dispose of your products correctly. They’ll also ensure your stoma, and the surrounding area are healthy and not affecting your health or wellbeing. Any notes and recommendations are then recorded and provided to your GP. We recommend you book an AUR at least once every 12 months.
