Illawarra Shoalhaven Diabetes Service


At the Illawarra Shoalhaven Diabetes Service we provide specialist advice to patients who require support to manage their diabetes. We can help you learn how to look after your diabetes, choose what food is best to eat and give you advice for the best management for your diabetes.


What we do

The aim of the diabetes service is to improve or maintain the health and wellness of people with diabetes and related chronic conditions, and to empower them to self-manage their condition.

The Diabetes Service provides both inpatient consultations and outpatient services across the district. Outpatient clinics occur at Wollongong, Shellharbour, Dapto, Nowra, Ulludulla and the Aboriginal Medical Service (AMS).

The Diabetes Service works closely with your GP.
