The Role of the GP

It’s really important that you have a regular GP that you get along with and trust. It’s good to have someone else who can help and who knows what’s happening to you. If you get sick your GP can help and be in contact with your specialist. Medicare may cover visits to the GP if they bulk bill. Your GP can help with emergency insulin scripts, general illness and referrals to other health professionals, however, it’s still important that you see a diabetes specialist.
