Around one million Australians have diabetes – a chronic disease affecting the whole body and requiring lifetime management.
St Vincent’s operates outpatient and inpatient Diabetes services to support patients suffering from this disease. The Hospital draws on the expertise of numerous clinicians including podiatrists, ophthalmologists, psychologists, psychiatrists and other specialists to offer a holistic approach to care.
The Foundation remains committed to supporting the care of these patients at St Vincent’s.
We currently need your help to fund the following diabetes projects:
- An integrated care program to refine referral pathways with local GP practices, homeless health services and asylum seeker centres
- Equipment and dressings to treat those with foot diseases and infections
- A new program to help Type 1 Diabetes patients manage insulin, food intake and improve self-management skills
Government grants do not cover the full cost of vital research or care, so your support is essential to provide immediate and long-term care for our patients. Please donate today to support these programs and help our patients.Donate now
