NHS England Transformation Funding
The key objectives were:
• to reduce the number of amputations in people with diabetes
• to reduce hospital admissions for people with active diabetic foot disease
• to generate cost savings to the NHS.
Two of the sites that received funding were Sheffield and Northamptonshire.
NHS England awarded transformation funding in 2017 to 36 sites in England for the introduction or expansion of multidisciplinary foot care teams (MDFTs) for diabetic foot care.
