How to register for the SAS
Application process and initial order
Step 1 – Register for the Stoma Appliance Scheme
Once you have had ostomy surgery, your Stomal Therapy Nurse will assist you to register as a participant in the Stoma Appliance Scheme (SAS), subject to you meeting the eligibility criteria). Your Stomal Therapy Nurse will ask you to complete Part 1 of a Stoma Appliance Scheme Application (PB049) . Your Stomal Therapy Nurse will then complete part 2 to confirm your eligibility.
Step 2 – Apply for membership of NSW Stoma Ltd
To obtain products through the SAS, a SAS participant must be a member of an approved stoma association such as NSW Stoma Ltd. Your Stomal Therapy Nurse will usually assist you with becoming a member of NSW Stoma Ltd. Otherwise, download our application form or contact the association to request a hard copy of our Application Form.
Step 3 – Submit documentation and your first order to NSW Stoma Ltd.
Generally, your Stomal Therapy Nurse (STN) will do this on your behalf. They will assist you to select ostomy products from the list of products available on the SAS Schedule. The products will be those your STN has determined are necessary for you to manage your ostomy. This list of products will become your initial order.
