Diabetes is a chronic condition that can result in significant complications if not managed correctly. Ideally you should be seeing a doctor at least every 3-6 months.
Central Medical Group run comprehensive Diabetes Clinics that are staffed by several of our experienced GP's with a special interest in diabetes care.
CMG also has an on site Diabetic Educator Ms Katie Fernside. Katie moved to the region last year and has been working at another local GP clinic.
Katie is trained as a Division 1 registered nurse at Deakin University and had worked at Cabrini Hospital for a number of years before completing her post graduate training in Diabetes in Health Care.
Over the past few years Katie has worked across 2 GP clinics and 4 different hospitals. Katie is currently working mainly with people who have Type 2 and gestational diabetes.
In the future Katie is looking to work closely with children with Type 1 diabetes. "I am very passionate about diabetes and educating individuals about their health".
