Rural and remote supply services
Diabetes WA support many people living in remote areas of WA, NSW, Victoria and Tasmania, ensuring they have access to essential diabetes products.
Diabetes products available through the National Diabetes Services Scheme (NDSS)* are distributed through the pharmacy network but remoteness or cultural issues can be a barrier to access for some people living with diabetes.
The Rural and Remote Supply Service administered by Diabetes WA supports organisations and individuals who would otherwise find it difficult to access their NDSS diabetes products. Many Aboriginal Medical Services and other remote area health services currently distribute to local communities as part of their overall health care.
This allows equitable access to NDSS products at culturally safe locations.
