Diabetes and Footcare

Diabetes increases the risk of foot ulcers, foot wounds, foot infections
        and amputation.

Good Diabetes Footcare reduces these risks.

Every person with diabetes should have a foot check at least once
        per year.

People with nerve damage, poor circulation or other foot problems
        may need to be seen more often.

If you haven’t had a foot check, ask your GP or Practice nurse to sort one.

If you develop a foot ulcer or wound or infection, see your GP
        immediately for assessment.  It’s URGENT or call:
