  • Mobile Diabetes Awareness Service

    Diabetes is one of New Zealand’s fastest growing long-term medical conditions. Pre-diabetes and type 2 diabetes are at epidemic proportions and the Auckland region is over-represented in certain populations.

    Our Mobile Awareness Service has been around since 2014, and visits communities where people work, gather, play, pray and eat. Our Mobile Diabetes Awareness Service is very popular with workplaces, events and communities filling up our calendar every month and at least three times a week.

    Our Mobile Awareness Team

    Our team are approachable, experienced and there to ensure that you understand the symptoms and the need for testing. They can provide resources and talk about things you can change in your lifestyle. We have a dedicated nurse and if we detect prediabetes or diabetes we will refer you to your health professional.

    ‘I was very pleased to contact your service. I was feeling overwhelmed with my current situation however knew that I needed to get a diabetes test done. While I was waiting for my turn to be tested Susan welcomed me, helped my overwhelming feelings calm down, she was very approachable and understanding. Sandy followed through by assisting me with assurance that things were going to be okay and was very understanding. She encouraged that I seek more medical advice for my blood pressure results. She phoned my manager and found me a local GP that I could visit right away. I was very appreciative of these ladies and all the help, care and advice they gave me. Thank you so much!’
