Herts Valleys CCG has identified foot care for people with diabetes as a key challenge and a priority area for improvement. As a result of this they have undertaken a programme of work to redesign their foot care to bring local services in-line with NICE guidelines and to implement an integrated footcare pathway.
Developing foot care services
the Improving Local Services Together Project Diabetes UK have worked with Herts Valleys to hold two patient engagement events, giving people with diabetes the opportunity to influence how the new care pathways will look. The sessions held in January and February 2013 were attended by around 40 people. The findings of the events and a video of the CCG’s presentation are available on theHerts Valleys CCG's website here.
