The CCG has identified foot care for diabetes patients as a priority area for improvement. This is in recognition of Mansfield and Ashfield’s position against key outcomes – with higher than average rates for amputations and for overall diabetes emergency admissions.
Foot care for diabetes patients
The CCG were reviewing their footcare pathway, and sought Diabetes UK’s support to involve their diabetes patients to have their input at an early stage of the redesign process. In March 2013 Diabetes UK joint-hosted two focus groups with the CCG for around 20 service users to give feedback on what they think about the current footcare services they receive and what they think needs to be improved. This feedback will influence how the CCG re-designs the pathway.
