Diabetes ServicesAshford Hospital offers an inpatient and outpatient Diabetes Service, coordinated by a credentialed Diabetes Educator.
Inpatient care involves education of newly diagnosed patients, those admitted with diabetes related illness and/or patients changing treatment regimes.
The outpatient service offers one-on-one appointments, for assessment and review for people living with diabetes. Referrals can be made by Endocrinologists, General Practitioners, Obstetricians, nursing services and self-referrals. Ashford Hospital has agreements with most private health funds that result in no out of pocket expenses to the patient. There are Medicare initiatives, through the Enhanced Primary Care Plan, which allow General Practitioners to refer public patients to this service.
Ashford Hospital also provides a comprehensive insulin pump clinic with an experienced Diabetes Educator.
