The Rockingham General Hospital Department of Diabetes and Endocrinology (Diabetes Centre) recently achieved accreditation status after undergoing a review against the National Association of Diabetes Centres (NADC) standards.

The review involved the staff self-assessing against governance, educational and clinical standards.

The team then sent their evidence to NADC and recently received the good news that they passed with flying colours to become an Accredited Diabetes Centre.

In particular, NADC commended the centre for facilitating a smooth transition for paediatric patients to the adult service and their use of technology to facilitate clinical services.

Department of Diabetes and Endocrinology Clinical Lead Dr Ken Thong said being accredited meant the centre was recognised for delivering a service in an accepted way and reviewing those services in a structured manner.

“As always, the Diabetes Centre prides itself as a multidisciplinary service and our strength is in our various members working and communicating well together,” Dr Thong said.
