We have developed a program for patients who are at risk of developing diabetes, and another program for patients who are already diagnosed with Type 2 Diabetes, and require an individual assessment or specific management of their condition to achieve better outcomes.

Health Assessment and Care Coordination Nurses
Our nurses are specialist nurses with an interest in Chronic Diseases such as Diabetes, Cardio Vascular and Asthma . The nurse provides a full medical check-up and health assessment which is designed to promote and maintain good health. The main emphasis of their role is in the areas of prevention and management

Routine Health Assessments that are available at the practice are:

1. Over 75 year old health assessment
This is an annual assessment which provides an overall view of your general health and covers areas such as sight, hearing, diet, your current medication and your immunisations. It also includes any help that you may be receiving at home (eg home help, meals on wheels) and if you have any problems with shopping, mobility, dressing or bathing etc.
At the conclusion of the assessment you will need to discuss the findings with your doctor. The assessment may be performed in your home or at the practice (No out of pocket expenses)

2. 45- 49 year old health assessment, or Type 2 Diabetes risk evaluation for patients aged 40-49 years of age
