Healthy feet are happy feet!

 

Do you have a patient with diabetes and foot ulceration? If so, High Risk Foot Services within Sydney Local Health District can help!

Patients with diabetes-related foot ulcers or those with suspected acute charcot neuroarthropathy can be referred for specialised multidisciplinary management to the Diabetes Centre RPAH or Concord Hospital, High Risk Foot Services. This is particularly important if the wound is deep, is associated with arterial disease, or is not reducing in size after two weeks. We encourage enquiries and referrals from general practitioners and podiatrists, although the podiatry referral should be accompanied by a medical referral.
