Placing an order

An order for stoma supplies may be submitted by mail, by fax, as an email attachment to This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. or in person. It is critical that members order by the correct product code as products will be supplied in accordance with that code. Products ordered incorrectly by the member will not normally be accepted for return. However, in extenuating circumstances the member may contact the association to seek assistance but should be aware that additional costs will be incurred if the product has to be changed. Costs charged will include any manufacturers restocking fee charged to the association and freight costs incurred in exchanging the product. 

If sending an order by email, please do not send as a .jpg attachment as it is not compatible with our system. Orders may be for either a one or two month supply and must be submitted in writing on an association order form.

Orders should be submitted by the 20th of the month for availability by the 10th of the following month however the association will accept orders outside of these parameters and, pending eligibility, will supply on a 2 week expected turnaround. An order for the current month can only be placed up to the third Thursday of the current month after which it will automatically be carried over to the next month. The Association supplies stoma related products in terms of the Stoma Appliance Scheme and will only supply in compliance with the entitlements and in the quantities permitted by the scheme.

Orders may be collected from our offices during business hours. If the order cannot be collected, postage of the order can be arranged. A postage packaging and handling charge applies to all postal orders and must be paid in advance of the order being dispatched by the Association. The charge is $10 for one standard months supply or $15 for up to two standard months supply (sent as one parcel). These charges apply to normal orders and a surcharge may apply to larger parcels to cover the higher cost of postage if applicable. In extenuating circumstances, a small emergency supply can be sent by the association for a cost of $25.

Payment is accepted by cash, credit card (a $1 processing fee applies), cheque and money order. Cheques and money orders must be made payable to:
