NDSS Update

COVID-19 and the National Diabetes Services Scheme (NDSS)

We recognise that people with diabetes and their families may be concerned about their risk, and also the availability of their diabetes medicines and NDSS products and supplies.

Most people are continuing to order and receive their NDSS products and diabetes medicines as usual. This ensures enough products are available for everyone.  For the latest information on COVID-19 and the NDSS, please visit the NDSS website via this link.

If you need a bit of extra support, or if you are struggling with your diabetes management during this time, please don’t hesitate to call the NDSS Helpline on 1800 637 700 to speak to a health professional.
