The medical centre’s experienced GPs recognise the importance of managing the four major areas of diabetes management:

  1. Blood glucose
  2. Lipids
  3. Body weight
  4. Blood pressure.

Our GPs use medications if required, encourage increased exercise levels and provide patient counselling, as do the Practice Nurses.

GPs refer to Dietitians, Diabetic Educators, Exercise Physiologists, Diabetes Australia and Endocrinologists who specialise in diabetes.  These practitioners work together with patients to optimise diabetic control.

Diabetes Clinics
Toormina Medical Centres (TMC) maintains a diabetes register for all Toormina Medical Centre and Sawtell Medical Centre patients who have diabetes. All patients on the diabetes register have the option of having an annual diabetes review for which they will be send a reminder letter with a pathology form. The patient will then have the option of booking in with one of the practice nurses for a half hour general health review which includes a measurement of weight, blood pressure, waist circumference, diet and exercise. The patient will then see their regular doctor for a diabetes consultation.

As part of our integrated diabetes care TMC has visiting podiatrists, an exercise physiologist, diabetes educator and a dietician.

Mental illness affects 1 in 2 Australians in their lifetimes. Our GPs are experienced at recognising any early signs or symptoms of mental illness and are equipped to ensure rapid access to effective treatment. If you require a Mental Health Care Plan, please book a specific 30min appointment for this service.
