Counties Manukau District Health Board, supported by the Freemasons Foundation and Middlemore Clinical Trials, has created the Diabetes in Pregnancy Registry, which aims to improve diabetes screening in women after pregnancy. About 1500 women attending a Diabetes in Pregnancy clinic to the year 2020 will be invited to participate. Post-gestational diabetes women have a lifetime risk of developing type 2 diabetes exceeding 70 per cent. The registry offers a significant advance in the screening of women at risk of diabetes, and will help the health system support better outcomes for females in the area by providing a systematic approach to repeat screening following delivery. GPs will receive notification to offer diabetes screening three months after delivery.
