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 Parastsomal Hernia.
Parastomal Hernias threaten to be a problem for some following Ostomy surgery. This can often 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 Unisex-style Vest Supportwear will not roll up. It will provide support over the abdomen, or even a Hernia, which prevents pressure directly on the Stoma and thus reducing the chances of leaks. The unisex-style Vest is extremely comfortable and versatile - and made from breathable fabric that will also reduce sweating and skin irritations. Our unisex style vest has a thick, tank top like strap which allows you to also wear as outer clothing.
This pack includes two black and two white Level 2/3 hernia support vests.
UK CUSTOMERS ONLY: You are entitled to apply annually, via the NHS, for three single Hernia Supportwear. (For the women we have Supportwear Female-style Vests, Pantie Girdles, Short-Leg Briefs, Long-Leg Boxers and Unisex Vests.)
As with all underwear and support vests, special care and attention should be taken when washing your garment.
