Our Aims For Stoma Management


Manchester Regional Membership of The Ileostomy Association aims to help anyone within the Greater Manchester Area who has had, or is about to have, an Ileostomy or Internal Pouch operation by helping them get back to 'normal life' We aim to offer advice and support on a range of issues including stoma management and how this will affect aspects of life such as social activities and relationships.


We aim to work with the Primary Care Services in order to improve the quality of patient care and to shorten the length of the rehabilitation process.

IA-Manchester aims to inspire people living with a stoma, enabling them to live their life to its full potential. Finally, we aim to attract, assist and help those 'ostomists' of all ages, beliefs and ethnic origins by providing advice, social contact, support and assurance..
