Newsletter February 2020 – Diabetes Service Update

Posted on Feb 26, 2020

This month we hear from one of our fabulous nurses, Jill, who wants to share the exciting news about a service we are now offering for all of our patients with diabetes. We also discuss our Instagram page and the exciting plan we have to use this to capture the progress of Turn The Corner’s biggest project for 2020.

This year, one of the things we would like to focus on more is improving the health and well being of our patients who live with Diabetes.

It is one of those chronic conditions that have the potential to cause serious health concerns if not managed well. Our priority is to ensure people living with Diabetes achieve their life goals without health issues getting in the way.

We would encourage anyone who has a diagnosis of Diabetes to come in for a health check and a management plan with one of our nurses before your next Doctor’s appointment. This helps coordinate your care and referrals can be made to any Allied Health professionals such as Diabetes Educators, Dieticians or Podiatrists that are involved in your care. It also means that Medicare can subsidise up to 5 Allied Health visits.

If you are worried that you may develop Diabetes in the future and are between 40-49 years old, you can also book for a health assessment with the nurse before your next Doctor’s appointment. It’s ideal to have blood tests done prior, so let us know if you haven’t had recent blood tests and we can arrange for a pathology form for you to collect and have the blood done before your appointment.

Our aim as always is to keep everyone as healthy as can be!

Here at Turn The Corner we like to be active on Social media, whether this is through our Facebook page where we share interesting medical articles or our Fun Fact Fridays, or our Instagram page which we also encourage you to follow!

This year Turn The Corner will be moving! We’re at the early stages of creating a new space that will enable us to continue to offer private, personalised care for you and your family, but in a more spacious environment. We’ll provide more details as the project progresses, but rest assured we’re not moving very far at all. Our Instagram page will be used to keep you updated on the progress of our expansion, covering everything from the renovations to the interior design. To follow our Instagram page and see all of the exciting progress, please follow this link.

Here at Turn The Corner we pride ourselves on giving our patients the best possible care that we can! If you have had a positive experience with us we would love to hear about it! As a small family business, we rely on word of mouth, we would greatly appreciate if you could follow the link below and leave us a Google review!
