Queensland Ostomy Association
About QLD Ostomy
We are all in this together
We are a member of the Australian Council of Stoma Associations and operate within their guidelines to administer the Stoma Appliance Scheme on behalf of the Commonwealth Government…
As a not-for profit organisation with only one part-time paid employee, we could not provide the service to our members without our dedicated group of volunteers. They give up their time and expertise on Tuesday and Thursday to keep the organisation running.
