You are entitled to apply annually, via the NHS, for three Hernia Supportwear. (For the men we have Supportwear Briefs, Boxers and Vests.) This Hernia Supportwear is only available on the NHS to those customers living in the UK:
This Hernia Supportwear is a very comfortable medical device with an equivalent strength to the Hernia Belt. It has a double aim: firstly, to help prevent the development of Parastomal Hernias; secondly, to offer support to those already living with a Parastomal Hernia.
Parastomal Hernias threaten to be a problem for some following Ostomy surgery. This can often lead to NHS re-admission and even further surgery. However, research suggests that by investing in cost-efficient Hernia Supportwear after Ostomy surgery will significantly reduce the chances of developing a Parastomal Hernia.
Our Brief Supportwear will not slip or roll down. It will provide support over the abdomen, or even a Hernia, which prevents pressure directly on the Stoma and thus reducing the chances of leaks. The Brief is extremely comfortable - and made from breathable fabric that will also reduce sweating and skin irritations.
The Brief Supportwear can also be purchased privately to top up your NHS quota.
All items carry the security of the CE MARK, which means we conform to the Medical Devices Directive and conformity Assessment.
