Ostomy NSW LTD (ONL) Update 2/7/2020

ACSA is very pleased to advise that due to a very rapid response from the ONL management, board, staff and volunteers, ONL are now back to operating at full capacity. ONL member dispatches are no longer being supported by partner associations, and all orders are being fulfilled by ONL out of their temporary premises.

Additionally, now that most of the backlog of orders has been cleared and existing members’ orders are returning to normal, ONL have started welcoming new members again.

 

The Australian Council of Stoma Associations Inc (ACSA) represents, at a national level, the interests of 21 regional Stoma Associations and, through them,  approximately 46,000 persons living with an ostomy and located throughout Australia.

ACSA provides liaison with the Australian Government in relation to access by persons living with an ostomy to products funded through the Stoma Appliance Scheme, coordinates ostomy related support services throughout Australia, provides advocacy for persons living with a stoma in Australia and publishes the national journal “Ostomy Australia” and a general ostomy information booklet “A Beginning Not an End”. Our primary objective is to assist the well being of all persons following ostomy surgery to ensure that they can maintain a normal quality of life where possible.

We also seek to promote an understanding of ostomy within the broader community and encourage visitors to explore all areas of our site to gain familiarity with the world of “ostomy”.
