MDDA sympathises with all of those affected by the catastrophic floods in Queensland and New South Wales. 

We encourage any IEM families seeking assistance to contact the MDDA directly at (03) 9723 0600 or [email protected] and we can connect you with the appropriate resources. We also encourage you to reach out via our Patient-only Facebook support group (found here) – as together we can be a powerful supportive network and as a community are willing to come together to support however may be needed.

Just a reminder that if any of our members require social or emotional support in response to the floods, you are welcome to call Jo, our Patient Pathways Telehealth Nurse (Mon Tues Wed 9am-5pm) for support on (03) 9723 0700 or Freecall: 1800 288 460. This initiative is part of the Patient Pathways Pilot program developed by the Centre for Community-Driven Research. 

If you need medical advice please contact your doctor or metabolic clinic. Also, as a reminder to allow for extra time for deliveries as you may experience delays.

Wishing you all safety and wellness in these tough times and please feel free to reach out and support each other within our close community.
