If you are a new member, you will have your first order for appliances and pharmaceuticals placed by a Stomal Therapy Nurse (STN) at the hospital where you have your procedure. Following this, you or your carer will need to order your supplies, ensuring you allow two weeks for delivery. It is recommended you keep around one months’ supply in stock in case of emergencies.

While orders of appliances and pharmaceuticals covered by the Stoma Appliance Scheme are supplied free-of-charge to members, there are also some products not covered by the scheme that available for purchase from Ostomy SA. Please see our Items for sale page for more information.
