Health Professional Referral Forms

Diabetes WA has a team of qualified and credentialled diabetes educators who provide education and support to people at risk of, or living with, diabetes.

All our programs are FREE, person-centred, evidence-based and are outside the Medicare Benefits Schedule.

Below you will find a list of downloadable, interactive referral forms to use when referring your patient/s to one of our Diabetes Group Education Programs or our Telehealth Service. More information on each program can be found on the relevant program page of this website, or by clicking on the program name in the list below.
