The NDSS assists people to better understand and self-manage their life with diabetes.
After your patient has been registered with the NDSS, they will receive a registration card and an information book. The information book is designed to provide general information about the NDSS, services, products and understanding diabetes. The registration card will be required when purchasing products or accessing services.
The NDSS provides products at subsidised prices to people who register for the Scheme, including blood and urine testing strips, and for eligible registrants, syringes, pen needles and insulin pump consumables. Product can be purchased over the counter at NDSS Access Points around Australia.
