Stomal therapy nurses provide a wide range of professional advice and support through specialised stoma clinics at ACT Health’s community health centres. The service is free to ACT residents holding Medicare or Asylum Seeker cards but appointments are essential.
To make an appointment for a stoma clinic, phone the Community Health Intake team on (02) 6207 9977 between 8am and 5pm Monday to Friday, or 8am and 3:30pm on Wednesdays (excluding public holidays).

Ostomates living outside the ACT who want to consult an STN should contact their local hospital in the first instance. You can find the stomal therapy nurse nearest to you by searching ‘Find an STN’ here: [LINK http://www.stomaltherapy.com]
