Leading the way in equitable, integrated foot care in Coventry, Warwickshire and Midlands

16 Nov 2022
NHS Park

Provision of high-quality, effective, integrated foot care is a key priority for NHS Diabetes Services. Foot disease particularly impacts those from disadvantaged backgrounds and it is important that we provide equitable services for all.

The optimisation of service models for people with diabetes can however prove challenging in the wider context of NHS service pressures and siloed care both locally and regionally. In this presentation we consider how an equitable effective approach to service improvement has been achieved in the Midlands region, with a particular focus on  Coventry and Warwickshire as a case study.

The session will be an interactive session looking to explore and share good practices, and build collaborations to improve equitable integrated foot care delivery nationally. 

  • Recognition of challenges associated with integrated foot care models
  • Gold standard approaches piloted in the Midlands Region and Coventry
  • Utility of self-appraisal, peer review, and root cause analyses incorporating NDFA data as a driver of change
  • Collaborative opportunity to share good practice and build networks
