Auckland DHB Nursing Services - Ostomy
The Ostomy service provides specialist nursing advice, assessment, support and supplies to people of all ages who have a stoma.
A stoma is a surgically created opening in the body e.g. the abdomen that requires the use of a colostomy, ileostomy or urostomy bag.
What to expect
We will conduct a full assessment and then work with you to develop a plan to ensure your continence needs are met.
If you are able to attend a clinic you will be requested to do so. The clinics operate an appointment system to ensure you are not kept waiting.
If you aren't able to attend a clinic the nurse will contact you following referral to arrange a visiting time at your home.
Please use e- Referrals to refer to the appropriate service. Referrals are triaged by a multidisciplinary team and actioned by the appropriate community team.
Alternatively please phone our contact centre 0800 631 1234
