Home Enteral Feeding


All patients discharged with a PEG or PEJ from a hospital in Cornwall will be known to the Home Enteral Feeding Service and will be regularly reviewed.

Refer any patient who does not have regular contact  ( at least every 6mths ) with the home enteral feeding team or who has symptoms potentially related to their feed e.g.

  • unintentional weight loss
  • unintentional weight gain
  • nausea, vomiting, bloating 
  • persistent diarrhoea

For problems relating to the PEG tube or stoma contact the gastrostomy nurse on cornwallstrokeservice@nhs.net
