Diabetes management and support
Our Credentialed Diabetes Educators provide specialist services for adults diagnosed with pre-diabetes and type 2 diabetes.
Our diabetes educators can support you by providing advice in managing blood glucose levels, food choices and medications. We can also provide education and staff training sessions for other health professionals or staff working in aged care facilities.
How do I access a diabetes educator?
We currently offer four types of services for people with diabetes:
- Fully funded services under our Chronic Disease Management program – a GP referral is required
- Fully funded services for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples in Bathurst through the Indigenous Chronic Disease Clinic – a GP referral is required
- Fully funded services for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples in Coonamble and Wellington through the Medical Outreach Indigenous Chronic Disease program
- NDIS funded services – funding for diabetes education is required as part of your current NDIS plan
Support and management is also available in a group setting through our Type 2 and You program which can be delivered in person or via telehealth.
