The Starship Paediatric Diabetes and Endocrine service is a regional or Auckland-wide service providing care for all children with diabetes and endocrine disorders throughout the greater Auckland area.

Paediatric Diabetes service

The Diabetes service cares for children from the greater Auckland region for both inpatient and outpatient needs. It is a multidisciplinary clinic setting.

Inpatient education is based at Starship Hospital: Ward 26a.

Acutely unwell patients are seen first in the Starship Children's Emergency Department.

Outpatient education including insulin pump starts, family follow-ups, psychology and dietetics is provided in the Paediatric Diabetes Centre at the Greenlane Clinical Centre.

Outpatient clinics are held three times a week (Monday, Tuesday and Friday), at Reception C, Ground Floor, Greenlane Clinical Centre, with a satellite clinic at the Botany Downs SuperClinic. These clinics are multidisciplinary clinics where there are paediatric endocrinologists, doctors-in-training (fellows or registrars), nurse specialists and allied health staff.
