Diabetes Health Network

The Diabetes Health Network supports improvement of health outcomes for people with diabetes in Western Australia. This is achieved through enabling collaboration between consumers and carers, health professionals, hospitals, health services, primary and community care and the WA Department of Health. Through supporting effective collaboration and facilitating health policy, the Diabetes Health Network contributes to greater coordination and integration of care across the State.

Network lead and membership

The Network is led by Dr Emma Hamilton supported by working groups, made up of representatives from Health Service Providers, health professionals, non-government organisations, general practitioners, and people with lived experience.
