The QLD Emergency Ostomate Support Service (QEOSS) is a QLD Government sponsored program which provides emergency support* to QLD Ostomates outside the normal business hours of their association. The service can be contacted between 8am and 9pm on 0432 522 311 and can arrange for a small quantity of emergency generic appliances to be made available (either to be collected from a Brisbane location or posted via Express Post satchel) to ostomates located in QLD. The emergency product supply provided is sufficient to provide cover for a stoma until the ostomate can contact their association or medical professional (Stoma Nurse or GP) to arrange for products to be issued through the Stoma Appliance Scheme or purchased. Emergency products sent by Express Post satchel will be delivered within Australia Post delivery timeframes.
Emergency supplies provided through the QEOSS are not intended to provide a supplementary supply to Stoma Appliance Scheme allowances. Repeat requests to QEOSS for emergency product support may therefore incur a fee.
