The Stoma Care Department is available to all patients in the surrounding area who have a stoma. Our normal working days are Monday to Friday, excluding bank holidays.
The Stoma Nurses hold weekly clinics on Thursday afternoons and Tuesday mornings at the Luton & Dunstable Hospital and alternate Wednesday afternoons at the Luton Treatment Centre. These are by appointment only.
Our direct telephone number is 01582 497091 and there is a 24 hour answering machine. Please leave a message and a member of the team will call you back. Alternatively we can be contacted via email on [email protected]You can view the Stoma Care Self Help Guide here.
To families of all our patients, we wanted to give a reminder that sadly, at both Bedford and the Luton & Dunstable University Hospital, we are still unable to allow any visitors on site, unless there are exceptional circumstances, for example in maternity or children’s departments, or for those patients who are receiving palliative treatment at the end of their lives, on a case-by-case basis.
At both our hospitals changes are being made to support services, and we would now ask that you contact the wards using the direct lines found here for Bedford and here for Luton and Dunstable University Hospital.
