    I have a busy private practice with thousands of patients, many of them diabetic. In our area almost the only patients receiving NHS treatment on a regular basis are diabetic.
    Many, many of my patients have severe foot problems, but are not diabetic. Even though they find it difficult to pay for private treatment, they effectively have no choice.
    If the diabetic patients with minor foot problems were simply told to check their own feet before bed (with a mirror if necessary) every day, they would only need to see an NHS podiatrist if they noticed a problem. In any case, seeing a podiatrist on the 1st March does not preclude the possibility of damage to the foot on 2nd March, with maybe 8 weeks to go before the next contact with the podiatrist...
    Is podiatry about dealing with problem feet, or taking responsibility for diabetics, who should be taking responsibility for themselves.

    Yesterday I attended The Diabetic Foot Journal Conference in London.

    There was an interesting talk given by Emily McBride, a Health Psychologist, from University London. She told us about a study she conducted which was trying to determine the psychological makeup of patients who presented with a diabetic foot ulcer, and why there was non-adherence to foot treatments and lack of preventative footcare.

    The conclusions drawn from this was that contrary to the popular belief that patients wanted information, and to be involved in treatment decisions, they actually didn't. The prevailing attitude seemed to be that it was the job of the Nurse/GP/Podiatrist/Surgeon/old Uncle Tom Cobley & All to manage their condition., certainly not theirs.

    I believe this was the paper ; http://onlinelibrary.wiley.com/doi/10.1111/dme.13158/abstract

    PUBLIC RELEASE: 18-OCT-2017
    Diabetes foot care services may help avoid lower limb amputations
    In a Diabetic Medicine study that compared different regions in England, areas that provided 10 key services for diabetes foot care had lower rates of major diabetes-related lower limb amputations.

    Services introduced included administrative support, standardized general practice foot screening, improved community podiatry staffing, hospital multidisciplinary foot clinics, effective care pathways, availability of an orthotist and audit.

    "Based on these findings we strongly recommend robust commissioning to provide and coordinate 10 key service provisions for diabetic foot care," wrote the authors of the study.
