Healthy Living NT services remote communities with group and individual appointments with the diabetes and cardiac nurse educators. If you are traveling from out of town, appointments will be made to coincide with visits to Darwin or Alice Springs, please give us as much notice as you are able for booking appointments. If we are unable to visit your community, telephone consultations are also available by appointment and we are happy to correspond with you by email.
Individual appointments will be made for people who have a physical impairment, for example: hearing impaired, vision impaired, lack of mobility etc or any client who cannot attend a group education session. Please advise our administration staff if any assistance is required (sign language interpreter, mobility needs etc) at the time of booking an appointment.
