When is a pharmacy not an NDSS pharmacy?

Web _NDSS Pharmacy


National Diabetes Services Scheme (NDSS) Access Points supply registrants with subsidized products and related information to help them manage their diabetes.


They offer easy access to subsidised products in the community. The majority of Access Points are community pharmacies; however, not all pharmacies are NDSS Access Points.


There are currently more than 1100 pharmacies in Queensland supplying approximately 250,000 NDSS registrants with their blood glucose testing strips, insulin needles, insulin pump consumables and continuous glucose monitoring products.


To find the nearest NDSS community pharmacy, go to

You will find the pharmacy name, address and phone number, as well as a map to locate this and other NDSS pharmacies in the local area.


If, however, the local pharmacy is not an NDSS pharmacy, they will be unable to supply products at the subsidised price.


A visit to an NDSS Access Point pharmacy ensures access to cheaper diabetes products.

A registrant should only be paying a maximum of $15 for a box of 100 blood glucose monitoring strips or $1.20 if they hold a concession card.


If your local pharmacy would like to apply to be an NDSS Access Point, please ask them to call Diabetes Queensland on 1300 136 588. 


We will be happy to advise about the process to make it easier for clients to get their subsidised diabetes supplies locally.
