Welcome! If you’re wondering whether you have diabetes, or whether there is an easier way to live with diabetes, you’ve come to the right place.

At Diabetes West we understand that at the heart of living with diabetes lies a simple truth… There IS no giant step. It takes a lot of little steps. There is no once-off cure for it; it needs to become a way of life.

It is for this reason that all our diabetes clinics and services are purposefully designed to walk the road with you. To help you address and control diabetes right from diagnosis and treatment through to maintenance, from both a medical and a lifestyle perspective.

Diabetes requires specialist knowledge. As a world class (humbly said) accredited diabetes centre of excellence, it is our business to know diabetes, inside out. But we also know that people don’t care about what you know, until they know that you care. We CARE. And it shows. Just ask our friends (no we don’t regard them as patients).

Your health is your greatest wealth. Don’t let diabetes deprive you from that. We invite you to come speak to us. Young. Mature. Male. Female. Any shape or size. Let us be your go-to place. Let us help you, help YOU.
