NDSS registration form gets an update
Wednesday, 14 April 2021
The National Diabetes Services Scheme (NDSS) is a government initiative which offers subsidised products, education and information to support people living with diabetes.
Recently, the NDSS registration form was updated and a few changes were made.
Quicker and easier
You will see that the form has been reduced to two pages, making it quicker and easier to complete.
The information collected includes basic personal details, type of diabetes the person is diagnosed with and when, as well as their current treatment.
Once registered, this information connects people living with diabetes with upcoming education sessions in their local area.
General Practice Nurses, including both enrolled and registered nurses, have now been added as authorised health professionals to certify the form.
More opportunities to join the NDSS
This makes it easier for people living with diabetes to link in with the NDSS and access the many benefits of registration.
An endocrinologist, diabetologist, general practitioner, credentialled diabetes educator, nurse practitioners and other registered medical practitioners can still certify the NDSS registration forms.
Where to send the form
Finally, to lodge the completed and certified form, simply email it to firstname.lastname@example.org (preferred option) or return by the alternative methods listed on the form.
Once registration is approved, the person living with diabetes will receive a welcome SMS and email containing their NDSS registration number, as well as an information pack in the mail.
