Type 1 Diabetes: Individual Program

About the Program

Our Credentialled Diabetes Educators and Accredited Practising Dietitians use a client-centred approach in the provision of diabetes self-management education.

To be eligible

Clients need to be aged over 18 and have a confirmed diagnosis of type 1 diabetes.

What clients can expect

Our experienced clinicians will help clients with the following:

  • Checking blood glucose levels
  • Adjusting insulin levels to improve glycaemic control and;
  • Carbohydrate counting and developing a healthy eating and exercise plan.

Bookings and referrals

Call our Health and Wellness team on 1300 820 398 (option1 and 3) to arrange an appointment. A GP referral is not required to access our services. Telehealth and in person appointments are available.

Locations

Individual appointments can be organised at our Midland, Osborne Park and Joondalup clinics.

Pricing

For appointments with a Diabetes Educator or Dietitian we charge $98 for an initial assessment and $80 for review appointments. Clients referred by their GP under a Team Care Arrangement will be eligible for a Medicare rebate. Concession card holders will be bulk billed.

Clients with private health cover may be eligible for a rebate from their private health provider. DVA Health Cards (Gold and White) will not incur any out of pocket costs.
