NHS Hernia Supportwear:
NHS Hernia Supportwear:
As a sandard rule you are entitled to make an application with Vanilla Blush for a maximum of 6 pairs (2 packs) of the Basic Cotton Underwear with internal pouch and 3 Support Garments (Pantie Girdle, Ladies Support Brief/Boxer, Mens Support Brief/Boxer and Belts). Vanilla Blush will check and filter your application prior to a decision being made whether it may be processed as an NHS prescription request. Please note there can be a variation between the different NHS Commissioning Groups, Stoma Care specialists and GPs regarding NHS prescription requests being authorised.
The Vanilla Blush Hernia Supportwear is a very comfortable medical device with an equivalent strength to the Hernia Belt. It has a double aim: firstly, to help prevent the development of Parastomal Hernias; secondly, to offer support to those already living with a Parastomal Hernia.
Parastomal Hernias threaten to be a problem for some following Ostomy surgery. This can offten lead to NHS re-admission and even further surgery. However, research suggests that by investing in cost-efficient Hernia Supportwear after Ostomy surgery will significantly reduce the chances of developing a Parastomal Hernia.
Our Long-Leg Boxer Supportwear is a must have during the hotter months, the high cotton content as well as longer leg allows you to wear dresses and skirts without legs chafing, whilst also supporting the abdomen, stoma, hernia, bulge. The unique silicone band will stop the garment rolling down. It will provide support over the abdomen, hernia/ bulge, stoma, prevents pressure directly on the stoma, reducing the chances of leaks. The Long-Leg Boxer is extremely comfortable - and made from breathable fabric that will also reduce sweating and skin irritations.
The Long-Leg Boxer Supportwear can also be purchased privately to top up your NHS quota.
All items carry the security of the CE MARK, which means we conform to the Medical Devices Directive and conformity Assessment.
