19 January 2015 Quality & Cost Effectiveness Review of the Provision of Stoma Care Services to Patients in the Community – Dispensing

Dear Dispensing Appliance Contractor


NHS Scotland and the Scottish Government are committed to the provision of a high standard of care to ostomy patients who rely on the Stoma Care Service for their ongoing help and support. 

Following the introduction of revised arrangements for the service in 2007, and updated in 2011, there is a need to undertake a Quality and Cost Effectiveness Review to assess the standard of the current provision.

The Review will be conducted in two stages with the Quality aspect being considered first.

Please find attached a copy of the Audit Tool to support your involvement in this process. I would be grateful if you could complete and return the Audit Tool to the address above by the end of March 2015.
