Turbo issues

Not a mechanic nor have any idea on this hence the question.
Bought a W reg Impreza 2000 105k on the clock in generally lovely condition.
However it has been standing and on first drive up to 70mph it started juddering on boost and eventually gave in, Stalled and had to be recovered!
RAC checked the pipes and there was oil in them, bringing the conclusion the turbo has gone.
Where can I get a turbo?
And... Most importantly, what else needs to be done to ensure no longer damage.
Cheers all
