Gastroenterology

We are the paediatric stoma nurses for Liverpool and surrounding areas, and we care and support children with varying types of stomas-colostomy, ileostomy, ACE, gastrostomy, and jejunostomy.

Our aim within the department is to provide a high quality service for children with stomas by recognising that the family is the constant in the child’s life and to provide the family with the skills and knowledge to support the child at home and where possible facilitate independent living.

The stoma care department consists of two part time stoma nurses – Pat Coldicutt who works Monday and Tuesday, and Brenda Hill who works Tuesday afternoon, Wednesday, Thursday and Friday.
