The Urostomy Association Journal magazine is published here on our website three times a year. In it you can read articles, stories and tips about living with a urinary diversion. You’ll also find news and information about the charity’s activities.
The magazine is compiled and edited by one of our volunteers. Many of the articles are written and submitted by people who are living with a urinary diversion. If you would like to contribute to the content of the magazine, you can find out more by reading the editorial guidelines.
We have a limited print run of hard copies of the magazine, so if you are unable to access the magazine online or prefer to read a paper copy, please get in touch to be added to the mailing list.
