At Cromwell Medical Centre we have a strong focus on the management of chronic conditions, particularly diabetes.

Joanne Dowling-Smith runs fortnightly diabetes clinics on a Thursday afternoon.  Once a month she is joined by Sharon Sandilands the diabetes nurse specialist for Central Otago.

This free service offers diabetes checks and individualised advice to patients and families regarding

  • Type 1, Type 2 and pre diabetes
  • Lifestyle – including teaching presentation and resources
  • Management of diabetes and prevention of complications
  • Medication
  • Insulin initiation (if necessary)

And referral to other services as necessary.

Joanne holds a Master of Nursing and is completing the final steps to becoming a prescribing nurse practitioner.
