Ostomy Glossary of Terms

We have included a ‘glossary of terms’ within our ‘You and Your’ booklets. Your patients can utilise this glossary as a reference point to check any of the terms or descriptions they are unsure about when they are reading literature or which they may hear during consultations.

To order our You and Your Colostomy, Ileostomy or Urostomy booklets, please contact your local Salts Healthcare Territory Manager or call Freephone 0800 028 8014 (0800 626388 in Scotland). Alternatively you can e-mail:
