Help us reach our goal of $150K

We are kindly asking for help to reach our $150K donation goal this financial year. Donations allow us to continue providing passionate Stomal Therapy Nurses (STNs) with specialised education and our members with access to qualified STNs.

To continue this service, we are reliant on the continuous generosity of our board members, volunteers, consultants, ostomates and their families. We kindly ask you to make a donation here.

Thank you for helping us to reach our fundraising goal for 2022/23!

Ostomy NSW is pleased to announce the appointment of Lee Gavegan as our STN operating on a weekly basis. Lee has twenty-two years’ experience with stoma care and believes in the importance of a patient-centred approach to care. The clinic that Lee will be a virtual telehealth process, with consultations utilising mobile phone and video conference facilities. For this reason, Lee and her clinic is available for all of members to contact her for support and care.
At this stage there is no face-to-face clinic available at our temporary location.

The telehealth clinic will operate on Tuesdays from 9am to 3pm. Please call our office on (02) 9542 1300 to make an appointment, and Lee will contact you for a time to meet.
