Background:
The growing prevalence and impact of type 2 diabetes mellitus is of international concern.

Objective:
This article describes an innovative model of complex diabetes care, delivered by advanced skill general practitioners supported by an endocrinologist and diabetes educator within a general practice setting.

Discussion:
Initial evaluation suggests a trend to better glycaemic control compared with the alternative available hospital outpatient care at a reduced delivery cost. A futuristic, integrated community/specialist model, delivered within a general practice setting, can deliver significant gains for Australians who have complex type 2 diabetes mellitus.
