How to book an appointment

The clinic is run by experienced accredited Stomal Therapy Nurses 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 884 759) or by clicking the ‘request an appointment’ button below and someone will contact you.

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 Stomal Therapy Nurse if you have one prior to enquiring with our service as they will know your situation better.
