Diabetic Foot Network Wales


Diabetic Foot Network Wales

Background

The recently published Diabetes Delivery Plan 2016-2020: ‘The best standard of care for everyone with diabetes’, gives key recommendations on how to Prevent and manage diabetic foot disease to reduce the significant burden of diabetic foot problems which may cause distressing and disabling ulceration and amputation. A National Diabetes Foot Coordinator has been appointed by the Diabetes Implementation Group to oversee the implementation of foot services. Central to achieving this goal is development of a Diabetic foot network, that will shape the future provision of care, providing a World class diabetic foot service to all its residents. The Diabetic foot network is looking to hold its meetings at WWIC as the opportunities between the two to work collaboratively to identify new ways of working, from education, prevention to new ways of treatment is clearly a shared goal. The latest meeting was held on 10th May 2017.
