Integrated Care Partnerships: Diabetes Foot care Pathway (Northern area)

2016-01-26


Integrated Care Partnerships in the Northern area have established a Diabetes Foot care Pathway which is currently being piloted in the Causeway and Mid Ulster areas.

A multi-disciplinary foot team is in place to coordinate podiatry care and to ensure diabetic patients with complex needs are seeing the right person, in the right place, at the right time. This will improve the effective management of foot ulcers, prevent complications, avoid the need for hospitalisation and, ultimately, reduce the number of minor and major amputations.
