Nurses from the James Paget University Hospital are set to hold a Halloween-themed open day in Oulton Broad.

Between 1 and 5pm on Tuesday, October 31, colorectal and stoma nurses who are usually based at the Gorleston hospital will be at the Wherry Hotel to offer advice to patients with bowel problems.

The ‘Spooktastic’ Open Day will feature educational displays, stoma company stands and health and wellbeing demonstrations.

The group of nurses belong to the multidisciplinary team that provide clinical expertise, information and support to patients who are undergoing investigations and treatment for colon and rectal (bowel) cancer, as well as their families.

It is hoped that the day will provide more information to help patients and carers understand treatments and give them an opportunity to talk to the experts.

The event is open to anyone who has a bowel problem, cancer patients and those with stomas.
