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 and diabetes education, 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 and sometimes in their home environment.

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