Queensland Paediatric Endocrinology believes families in regional and rural Queensland need access to expert advice and support for children's diabetes and other endocrine issues like growth hormone disturbances, thyroid, early or late puberty.
We also understand that it can be difficult and disruptive for families to have to travel to Brisbane for consultations.
That's why we hold monthly outreach clinics in Toowoomba, better serving the state's south-west, Darling Downs and Burnett regions.
We continue to negotiate for similar clinics in other Queensland regions.
We also support the use of telehealth follow-up consultations for patients who we have seen face-to-face in Brisbane or Toowoomba.
