Diabetes Education

Diabetes Education Service

GP down south employs a number of experienced Diabetes Educators throughout the Greater Bunbury and South West region to enhance the accessibility of diabetes education for people living in the Bunbury region and the rural communities of Margaret River, Augusta, Pemberton, Donnybrook, Manjimup and Collie.

General Practitioners can refer newly diagnosed people with diabetes for intensive counselling and advice, and established diabetics may be referred for additional advice or assistance with a range of diabetes related matters. Where existing Diabetes Education service providers exists, we do not attempt to duplicate services but work in close collaboration with other agencies such as Silver Chain or the Area Health Service to ensure accessible services are available throughout the region.
