The first step to better ostomy care is identifying precisely what kind of issues you're dealing with and what might be causing them.

Whether you have had your stoma for 6 months or 60 years – The Ostomy Check is designed to help you stay on top of the typical issues you may be facing when living with a stoma. You can identify if you have problems with sore skin, adhesion problems, leakage, odour or ballooning.

You can also celebrate by clicking the “I have no issues” button when everything is well!

Currently Coloplast Care shows that 2 out of 3 people have issues with their stoma. This number seems very high, and the aim of the Great British Ostomy Check is to conduct a wider survey to get a clearer picture of living with a stoma in the UK. Does this really reflect the everyday experience of living with a stoma?

If you have a challenge with your stoma – Coloplast Care offers real world support through the Coloplast Care advisors. The team will be able to offer you hints and tips on how to resolve any challenges you may be facing. If they can’t help they will refer you back to our nursing team.
