As a sandard rule you are entitled to make an application with Vanilla Blush for a maximum of 6 pairs (2 packs) of the Basic Cotton Underwear with internal pouch and 3 Support Garments (Pantie Girdle, Ladies Support Brief/Boxer, Mens Support Brief/Boxer and Belts). Vanilla Blush will check and filter your application prior to a decision being made whether it may be processed as an NHS prescription request. Please note there can be a variation between the different NHS Commissioning Groups, Stoma Care specialists and GPs regarding NHS prescription requests being authorised.
The Vanilla Blush 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 Short-Leg 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 Short-Leg brief is extremely comfortable - and made from breathable fabric that will also reduce sweating and skin irritations.
The Short-Leg 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.
As with all underwear, special care and attention should be taken when washing your garment.
Make sure you wash dark colours separately and wash at 40 Degree. Do not tumble dry, bleach, or dry clean any of these items. Iron at a cool temperature.
