Where do I get my stoma care supplies from?


At discharge we will provide you with 2 weeks supply to meet your current stoma care needs. At your first home visit we will normally review your ongoing stoma care prescription requirements. Your GP will then be informed of these.

All stoma care products need to be prescribed and can be obtained with a prescription from either a Home Delivery Company or your local pharmacy.

We communicate with your GP to ensure that you have the correct products for your stoma care. Your prescription may require review at times as your needs may change. New stoma care products can only be prescribed following a clinical review and communication with your GP practice.
