Nottinghamshire & Derbyshire IA

Nottinghamshire & Derbyshire IA has been providing support to people with ileostomies and internal pouches in the area for over 50 years. We are also happy to offer non-medical advice to members, those still considering surgery, and their families, through our trained visitors.

We have strong relationships with all the hospitals in our area, and also support them by attending their annual Stoma Care Open Days on behalf of IA.

Our IA members receive the IA Journal every quarter, plus the Midlands IA Bulletin three times a year. Every 3 months we sent out our local newsletter, which is just one of the many ways we keep people informed of what we are doing.

We hold our annual members meeting around April/ May each year and have a busy calendar of social events throughout the year. For an overall view of our events plan for this year please visit our web site at
