Managing Your Diabetes

Diabetes WA Helpline and Telehealth Service

Do you have a question about diabetes or your risk of diabetes? We are here to answer all of your diabetes questions – no question is too hard or too trivial for us.

The free Diabetes WA Helpline connects you with a credentialled diabetes educator who can provide information, education, and counselling on all aspects of diabetes care. They can also refer you on to other healthcare professionals or services should the need arise.

Our team of diabetes educators include dietitians, nurses, exercise physiologists and pharmacists.

Phone for a chat, ask a burning question or choose an extended free telehealth appointment. We connect you to local and online services, including MyDESMOND – our new type 2 diabetes online education program pilot.

How does it work?

It’s easy. Call us  on 1300 001 880 and ask to speak with a diabetes educator.

All conversations are confidential.

Alternatively, you can email one of our credentialled diabetes educators for a confidential written response.

What does it cost?

The Diabetes WA Helpline can be accessed by anyone in WA for the cost of a local call.  A Telehealth consult requires an internet connection.

When can I call?

The Helpline and Telehealth service is staffed 8.30am to 8.00pm weekdays.
