There are many home delivery companies, all of which can deliver any of the stoma products available on prescription. These are often referred to as DAC’s ( Dispensing Appliance Contractors).
Your stoma nurse will give you information on a range of DAC’s, and allow you to choose which DAC is best for you. They will usually set you up with your chosen DAC, ensure you receive the correct products you need, and give you information on how to order once you are at home.
Once registered, the DAC will usually send your first supply of products within 24 hours, so you don’t run out. This is usually one month’s supply.
The home delivery company will then contact your GP on your behalf to arrange the prescription. Once this is received back from your GP, your products will be despatched within 24 hours.
You need to contact your GP and ask them to issue a prescription for the product advised by your nurse. You can then take this along to your pharmacy who will be able to supply or order your products for you.
