How to enquire about an appointment

The clinic is run by experienced Coloplast Clinical Nurse Advisors who have access to all the latest products available. First appointments are likely to be around an hour, and follow-up appointments will be shorter. You can either call our consumer care team and enquire about an appointment over the phone (1800 316 649) or by clicking the ‘request an appointment’ button below and someone will contact you back. Where possible we will try and support you over the phone with our team of skilled Consumer Care Specialists, but if a clinic appointment is required, we will be able to book you in to speak to one of our nurse advisors.

 

We would always recommend that you seek assistance from your own specialist continence nurse if you have one prior to enquiring with our service as they will know your situation better.

*Please note: as we transition from virtual appointments only to face-to-face clinic appointments, Coloplast has put in extra measures to ensure your safety, such as routine cleaning and providing you with complimentary face masks.
