The Urostomy Association is a UK registered national charity representing the interests of people with a urinary diversion.
As this is not a subject which is openly or readily discussed there is a general lack of information about the condition.
The aims and objectives of the Urostomy Association are fairly widespread, covering many aspects of a person’s life.
We assist in whatever way we can, such as helping patients in the period both before and after the operation, with such help and support as may be necessary and assisting them to resume as full a life as possible, with complete confidence. We have many years experience of answering questions about urinary diversions and have a lot of information on the subject.
We offer support, reassurance and practical information to anyone who may be about to undergo, or who has already had surgery resulting in a urostomy, continent urinary pouch or a neo-bladder. Appropriate support and information is also offered to families and carers both before and after surgery.
