VOL: 103, ISSUE: 9, PAGE NO: 39NICE has produced a commissioning guide to foot-care services for people with diabetes.
NICE has produced a commissioning guide to foot-care services for people with diabetes.
It is hoped the guide will help health professionals in England to commission an effective foot-care service for adults and children with diabetes mellitus.
The guide uses the NICE guidelines on the prevention and management of foot problems in type 2 diabetes to inform the care of people with both type 1 and type 2 diabetes. It makes the case for commissioning a foot-care service for people with diabetes, specifies service requirements, helps determine local service levels and advises on corporate and quality assurance.
