North Midlands and Shropshire IA (the Ileostomy and Internal Pouch Support Group) is a self-help group for people who have had their colon removed.

The organisation has a large geographical area to cover between Telford, Shrewsbury, Oswestry, Stoke, Stafford, Crewe, Leek, Congleton and out to Derby.

The group is supported by volunteers and qualified visitors, dedicated to providing a self help service and support to other people. They also fundraise for research as well as buying equipment for various hospitals in the area.

Our regular IA Journal and Midlands IA News Bulletin provides all members with regular updates and information on new products and accessories available.

Support to families and patient alike is provided through hospital, home and telephone visiting, sharing our experiences, providing published magazines and helpful hints and often by just being there. As an ileostomy and internal pouch association we are there to provide help and manage every-ones expectations, whether it be stoma or pouch, for young or not so young, for families and friends, by magazine or via the internet, IA will always be needed.
