We have a range of items that are available to be prescribed in both the UK and Republic of Ireland ( excluding incontinence) , this however shouldn't translate into you being entitled to items on prescription. There are a number of factors to be considered, that will determine if your application is accepted or not those are:
The area you live in : UK ONLY. This doesn't effect those living in ROI.
If you don't have a stoma, but have a hernia ( some GP's may not know these are available so worth sending them a link)
CCG (clinical commissioning group) : UK ONLY
Central prescribing services : UK ONLY
Stoma care nurses.
Some patients will be allowed these items but unfortunately some won't. We do have some tips that may help an application to be successful
Those are :
Having a chat with your Stoma care Nurse to see if we can carry out a phone, zoom or face to face consultation.
Only order one item.
Call us directly if you need help with sizing, but note as long as item is tried on over outer clothing and is suitable for exchange in size we will do this for you.
Have a chat with your GP to see if they will authorise the request
Have a chat with the prescription services to see if they will allow you to have the item: UK ONLY
