National Diabetes Services Scheme (NDSS)

Star Pharmacy Kew and Star Pharmacy Middle Park are NDSS Providers. 

The National Diabetes Services Scheme (NDSS) is an initiative of the Australian Government that commenced in 1987 and is administered by Diabetes Australia to assist individuals in understanding and managing life with diabetes. 

The NDSS provides support services for practical help and guidance, diabetes health information and resources as well as subsidised diabetes products.  

These products include: 

  • blood glucose monitoring strips (restrictions apply to people with type 2 diabetes who do not use insulin) 

  • urine monitoring strips 

  • insulin syringes and pen needles (if you need insulin or approved non-insulin injectable medications) 

  • insulin pump consumables (for people with type 1 diabetes who meet certain eligibility criteria) 

  • continuous and flash glucose monitoring products (for people with type 1 diabetes and specific ‘other’ conditions who meet certain eligibility criteria).
