Diabetes Services Provided by Counties Manukau Health
Diabetes clinics are held at multiple locations as shown below.
Your referral to the diabetes clinic will be prioritised (given a position on a list of other referrals) depending on how severe your diabetes is. You may be asked to undergo some tests or fill in a questionnaire before seeing the health professional in the clinic.
You will see a diabetes nurse specialist at your appointment who you may continue to see for ongoing help with the management of your diabetes. You may see other specialists who are part of the diabetes team such as a specialist doctor who may be a registrar (a doctor training to become a specialist who works under the supervision of a specialist). You may also see a dietitian or a podiatrist.
You may be seen on 1:1 basis or be invited to come to group education.
You may have ongoing follow-up in the clinic or have your treatment carried out by your GP with advice from the specialist. The diabetes service has clinics at some GP practices.
