Make Change Happen

Six Vital Steps

Step 2: Learn about existing local services and outcomes

Before you can improve services, you need to know what the current pathway in your area looks like:

  • What services are available for people with diabetic foot problems?

  • How quickly are people seen?

  • What are the outcomes?

  • What are the costs?

This website contains information about foot care in your area, and can help you answer some of these questions.

The National Diabetes Footcare Audit and Public Health England provide further information.

But it is likely that you will also need to gather additional local information.

Working with local providers, you can gather data about existing services

to identify gaps in the pathway, and areas where resources can be used more productively.
