At Cromwell Medical Centre we have a strong focus on the management of chronic conditions, particularly diabetes.

Our Nurse Practitioner Joanne Dowling-Smith regularly reviews her caseload of patients who have diabetes, in collaboration with diabetes nurse specialist for Central Otago, Sharon Sandilands.  Joanne holds a Master of Nursing and has completed her qualification as a prescribing nurse practitioner.

This free service offers diabetes checks and individualised advice to patients and families regarding:

  • Type 1, Type 2 and pre diabetes
  • Lifestyle – including teaching presentation and resources
  • Management of diabetes and prevention of complications
  • Medication
  • Insulin initiation (if necessary)

And referral to other services as necessary.
