“The Christmas period can be a tough time to approach especially when you have a stoma. Remember: you are not alone.” – SecuriCare Stoma Care Nurse
In this blog, a Stoma Care Nurse discusses ‘Managing Your Stoma At Christmas’
Christmas can be a happy and sad time for some people, and you might feel you need that extra emotional support. There’s a lot of support available during this time, please contact your Stoma Care Nurse to point you in the right direct. Colostomy UK can help put you in touch with someone else with a stoma to talk to. Remember: you are not alone.

Throughout September, the team at Welland took part in Colostomy UK’s ‘Step Up for Stoma’s’ challenge to help raise awareness of stomas and those living with one.
In the UK there are 160,000 people currently living with a stoma and Colostomy UK, a charity that supports and empowers those living with stomas, challenged individuals to take a step for every one of them.
Here at Welland the team were more than up for the challenge, putting their best foot forward and started counting their steps.
The Step Up for Stomas team consisted of seven people from the business all from different departments, including Marketing, Purchasing, Manufacturing, Sales and Finance.
Encouraging and motivating each other, the team went on lunch time walks and even had some competitive step counting, helping each individual reach their target.

Aura Plus from CliniMed was the recent focus of Clinical Nurse Specialist, Fiona Le Ber’s peer reviewed clinical article in the British Journal of Nursing.
We were very pleased to work with Fiona to provide stoma pouches and research to support the article, which looks at reducing the risk of complications for stoma patients.
In the article Fiona addresses the most common complaints from ostomates; leakages and sore skin. It details how, even with correct pre-surgical assessment and siting of a stoma, future complications and poor product choice can lead to leakages, sore skin and ultimately negative effects on the ostomate’s quality of life.
Helapet has launched a new inline disc filter product and services brochure. This useful new brochure is designed to provide comprehensive information and insight into our custom inline filter manufacturing service, with all of our key variable elements, including cleanroom processing, packaging and sterilisation services. It is a handy reference guide providing quick and easy navigation across the customisable elements of our filters.
Our latest filter brochure has been designed in conjunction with our brand new interactive, online filter design tool, allowing you to share and add your own unique filter specifications to the filter design. This gives you the opportunity to effectively build your own filter which we can quickly and accurately quote and process for you.
Over the last year like many companies, we adapted to the changing environment around us. With face-to-face meetings becoming a distant memory and video calls the new ‘normal’, we had to adapt.
Due to COVID-19 restrictions, we were unable to hold our annual Global Partner Meeting last year but thought innovatively this year. We worked alongside an external production agency, The Outlook Creative Group who specialise in live production events to plan for our first ever virtual meeting.
Looking back on our first virtual event, we were able to reach over 200 attendees throughout 30 countries and it enabled us to continue sharing best practice in supporting both Health Care Professionals and people who live with stomas across the world.
One of the most common requests we hear from customers is: “I want to be comfortable”.
This seems like such an easy goal to achieve but everyone has their own ideas on what being comfortable actually means. To some it could mean feeling safe, to others it could mean feeling content, to those using other specialist equipment it could mean the opportunity for some freedom, and to those who experience pain it could mean finally being able to relax.
When specialist seating systems are used appropriately, and are tailored to the individual, quality of life can be significantly improved.
CareFlex specialist seating systems offer many functions and accessories that promote comfort. Back angle recline can open up the hip angle for a more relaxed position, tilt-in-space can manage energy levels, and a waterfall back can securely support the client within the chair.
