National Diabetes Services Scheme Accredited (NDSS)
Greg Keily Chemist is an NDSS accredited pharmacy. This means that we are able to supply consumables (such as Blood Glucose testing strips, Syringes and Needles) at a reduced price, to people suffering from Type 1, Type 2 and Gestational diabetes.
The NDSS scheme is an initiative of the Australian Government, and the scheme is administered by Diabetes Australia.
In order to access the NDSS scheme, you must be a medically diagnosed diabetic, and a registered patient with NDSS Australia. Registration is available for all Australians with diabetes and membership is free.
If you are not a member, we are able to supply you with the forms required for membership, by visiting us in store. We can also supply you with the forms for Type 1 and 2 diabetics, and for Gestational Diabetics. Once your regular doctor has completed the forms, return them to us, and we can organise your membership.
Greg Keily Chemist has a number of qualified pharmacists who are able to offer advice and education on all aspects of diabetes management, including:
- Expert advice on all medications used in the treatment of diabetes
- Education on the use of Blood Glucose monitors and Insulin Pens
- Advice on the management of diabetes and management of sick days
- How diet and exercise affect the management and progression of diabetes
- Information on Diabetic Foot and Eye care
In addition to diabetes advice, Greg Keily Chemist has in stock a large amount of all types of insulin. With opening hours of 7am to 9pm you can be assured supply of this essential medication day and night.
We also stock a large range of Blood Glucose Testing Machines, and provide you with expert training on the use of the meter and explain to you what the results mean. Our staff will help you choose the right products to manage your diabetes, and will show you how to use it.
