Foot service

With 80% of amputations being avoidable, reduction in amputation rates is one of our specialities. Addressing foot care pathways is fundamental to improve health outcomes and also enables financial savings to be made.

The consultancy offers expert advice and assistance to those looking to improve their foot care services. With experience of working in the NHS, especially in foot health, we are well aware of the challenges that exist in providing effective foot care services. We will help identify locally tailored ways to overcome these issues and create a service that works for you and your patients.

Our work with Great Yarmouth & Waveney CCG

“In Great Yarmouth and Waveney CCG there was a need for an independent review of foot care services locally. So the Service Redesign and Improvement Consultancy was approached to help carry out this review. They engaged with all relevant parties and carried out in-depth 1-2-1 interviews with all stakeholders. Having reviewed the outcomes of these interviews and developed an in depth idea of what the service looked like they made recommendations on service delivery.

The review provided an overview of the current pathway and current expenditure and provided options for future commissioning.

The external expertise provided by Diabetes UK Consultancy Service was the precise mechanism required to carry out a professional independent review. Outcomes from the review will inform a system wide approach to improving the patient experience and building a fully integrated service. From my experience working with the team, I have no hesitation in recommending them to inspire and support service re-design and delivery to improve outcomes for those with diabetes.”
