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, assisting them to resume as full a life as possible, with every confidence.
We have many years’ experience of answering questions about urinary diversion. To see the more frequently asked questions, and our replies, click here.

Home or Hospital Visiting
Selected members of the Urostomy Association, who are appropriately trained, are available to contact members on request. They can contact either in hospital or in the privacy of the member’s home. Problems such as welfare, social, relationships and housing are examples of the subjects that can be discussed. We aim to allay any apprehension a patient may have and to give encouragement and moral support in helping the patient return to a normal mode of living after the operation.
