Diabetes Educators
 The Diabetes Service

The Diabetes Service provides specialist advice for the clinical management of diabetes.  This includes medical, nursing and nutritional management of diabetes; diabetes education and information for patients, family/whanau, health professionals, community groups and the general public.

People with diabetes are seen in outpatient clinics (both hsopital and community settings), as inpatients during a hospital admission.

The staff are based at Rotorua & Taupo Hosptials but time is spent in the community setting across the Lakes District Health Board region.
