Pouch Support Help

If you would like help or advice about your pouch, you can always e-mail Zarah Perry-Woodford who is a Pouch Nurse Practitioner at St. Mark's Hospital in England. She has years of experience helping new and experienced pouch owners alike and is happy to offer advice.

In order to support more people, she may publish extracts from your e-mail without your name. If you are not happy for Zarah to share anonymised extracts with others, please state that in your e-mail. 

Zarah's e-mail address is This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. .
