The National Diabetes Services Scheme (NDSS) is an initiative of the Australian Government administered by Diabetes Australia. The NDSS delivers diabetes related products at subsidised prices and provides information and support services to people with diabetes. Registration is free and open to all Australians diagnosed with diabetes.
The NDSS has Agents in all capital cities. NDSS Agents are your state and territory diabetes organisations. NDSS Agents manage the delivery of diabetes related products and provide support services to people who are registered on the NDSS. More information can be found under NDSS Agents.
You can purchase subsidised products through NDSS Access Points. NDSS Access Points include your local pharmacy, health centre and hospital. You can purchase NDSS products, lodge your registration form, and receive advice on diabetes at NDSS Access Points. For more information, go to Access Points or to find your nearest Access Point go to the NDSS Online Services Directory.
You can also order NDSS products by calling 1300 136 588 or by faxing your order to your NDSS Agent. Some NDSS Agents have online ordering to make life just that little bit easier. Please refer to the website of your NDSS Agent.
If you have an inquiry, which cannot be answered by your NDSS Agent, please contact Diabetes Australia's national NDSS office.

Australian Diabetes Map
The Australian Diabetes Map is the only national map monitoring the prevalence of diabetes in Australia, and is a dynamic reference tool for the whole community, our healthcare professionals, policy makers and researchers to help bring a better understanding of diabetes.
The data contained in the Australian Diabetes Map is derived from the National Diabetes Services Scheme (NDSS) Registrant database as at June 2013 and shows people diagnosed with diabetes who are registered on the Scheme against the total population at a national, federal electorate, state electorate, local government and postcode level.
NDSS national diabetes data snapshots are updated every three months, and provide key statistics for all types of diabetes, type 1 diabetes, type 2 diabetes, gestational diabetes, and insulin therapy
