ACT STOMA THERAPY NURSES


Stoma Therapy Nurses (STNís) ĖAppointments for contact with a Stoma Therapy Nurse in the ACT can be made by ringing the ACT Community Health Intake line Telephone No. 02 6207 9977.

Appointments to visit the ACT STNís are only available each Tuesday afternoon. Our STNís have many other work duties, which restrict them to only having STN duties on Tuesday afternoons, unless there is an emergency. Only ACT residents have access to the ACT Dept of Health STNís. Our STNís are Judith, Clare, Cheryl and Lillian and they have their office at the Phillip Health Centre. There is also STN assistance at the Belconnen Health Centre.

Members who reside outside the ACT have access to STNís who are usually located is your larger towns. There is Bev in Young, Kirsti at Cooma, Trena in Moruya, Jenny at Queanbeyan and Janine in Gunning to name a few. They are all fantastic.


On the second Tuesday of each month, that we are open for collection of supplies, there is an ACT Community Care STN available in our Room between 10am and mid-day to assist those requiring help. No appointment is needed, first in first assisted.

Also we have Company Reps assisting in our room, during the allocated monthly open days.

There are a number of the reps who are an STN. You could make contact with the Office Manager to confirm on what day the STN (company rep) will be assisting in the room.
