Birmingham IA

Birmingham IA is a friendly support group for ileostomists and internal pouch patients within Birmingham and the surrounding areas.

We have developed excellent relationships with our local hospitals and support the weekly stoma clinics at Heartlands hospital, working closely with the stoma care nursing team. We also support the hospital’s regular events for new ileostomists. Our trained visitors support our membership and also those about to go through surgery, being available to offer help, guidance and advice by phone, email or in person.

IA membership entitles members to receive a quarterly IA Journal and three copies of the Midlands News Bulletin each year. (We keep our members fully informed of our many planned meetings and activities such as supplier events being held locally.)

Our membership events calendar includes an Information Day held in the late spring to which we invite surgeons, medical professionals and inspirational Ileostomists to talk about current advances in surgery and research projects, specialist medical advice and guidance, and individual journeys and achievements.

We hold regular social events across the City, including coffee mornings, meals in Sutton Coldfield, Solihull and Quinton and an increasing programme of social events for our younger members. Additionally we hold meetings specifically for members with a Pouch. Details of all of our social events appear under the events tab section.

Please contact Mr Michael Jameson on 0121 3552745/07842 555070 for any further details.
