Stoma-related products in Australia are available as needed, despite the COVID-19 pandemic.
Parcels for ostomates are marked as ‘essential medical supplies’, and we have been working with Australia Post to ensure they prioritise these packages. But we do recommend allowing extra time for delivery. You might also be able to order 2 months of products at a time, if you are eligible.
