Her services include dietary and lifestyle advice, introducing glucometer use for sugar monitoring, insulin initiation and coaching, diabetes care plan reviews, emergency diabetes management, and diabetes complication assessments.

Her services are bulk-billed and are performed in conjunction with a doctor. The diabetes education service is available on Monday, Wednesday, Thursday and Friday and appointments to see Judy can be made via our reception.

For patients with more complex or difficult to control diabetes, we also have a visiting specialist endocrinologist, Professor Lee Kennedy, who consults once a month on Thursdays. An appointment with Professor Kennedy can be made through our reception with a referral from your doctor.
