The Federal Government has made changes to
the distribution of subsidised NDSS products. From July 1 2016,
NDSS products will no longer be available through the Diabetes
Queensland online shop or the NDSS 1300 phone number.
NDSS products will only be available through
community pharmacies that are NDSS Access Points. This includes
blood glucose test strips, insulin pen needles and syringes, and
insulin pump consumables.
Where a pharmacy does not stock the insulin pump consumables
required, they can be ordered by the pharmacy and delivered to the
pharmacy generally within 24-48 hours.
Diabetes Queensland's range of other diabetes products
(including lancets, sharps containers, travel packs etc) will
remain available here at the Diabetes Queensland online shop and
via our telephone Helpline - 1800 177 055. Our helpline will
continue to operate and provide information about the NDSS,
products and also to provide advice, information and a range of
diabetes education and support services to people with diabetes.
Diabetes Queensland remains the charitable peak body and
membership organisation serving Queenslanders living with diabetes,
and those at risk. We continue to work with the NDSS to provide
education, advice and other essential support and advocacy
services. For further information please read more about NDSS product
changes or see our frequently asked questions. Latest
