Improving Diabetic Foot Care: A Guide for Commissioners
Make Change Happen
Six Vital Steps
Step 1: Find out what good care looks like
NICE guidelines set out the key components:
A foot protection service for preventing diabetic foot problems, and for treating and managing diabetic foot problems in the community.
A multidisciplinary foot care service (MDFS) for managing diabetic foot problems in hospital and in the community that cannot be managed by the foot protection service.
Robust protocols and clear local pathways for the continued and integrated care of people across all settings, including emergency care and general practice.
Regular reviews of treatment and patient outcomes, in line with the National Diabetes Foot Care Audit.
