Central Hume Primary Care Partnership

Diabetes Centre

Over the last 8 months Benalla Health, Gateway Health (Wangaratta) and Northeast Health Wangaratta have been working together to advance an action plan to develop a collaborative Diabetes Cen-tre for the Central Hume PCP catch-ment.

This is a significant piece of work that has the potential to really improve ac-cess and coordination of services for people with diabetes in Central Hume.

Using the National Association of Dia-betes Centres accreditation criteria as a base, the organisations are planning to become an accredited centre by, for example, incorporating telehealth op-tions for clients and increasing access to accredited Diabetes Educators.
