The Government will support people with stomas to manage their condition by adding two new and fully subsidised stoma care products to the Stoma Appliance Scheme, from 1 July this year. The Stoma Appliance Scheme helps thousands of Australians to manage their stoma, often needed after treatment for diseases such as bowel cancer.
