Best practice will be the focus of a free healthcare professional footcare conference which registration has now opened for.

The London Diabetes Clinical Network Footcare Steering Group has said its annual conference has an “action-packed agenda” and will take place on October 8 at The Oval.

Now in its 6th year, this year’s event will focus on progressing footcare in London “from excellent to outstanding”.

As well as best practice, attendees will also be given an update on services delivered by multidisciplinary foot teams (MDFTs) and foot amputations across London.

Diabetes experts have been lined up to deliver topical sessions on a national diabetes update followed by how footcare will be impacted by the Long Term Plan, in London.

There will also an opportunity to discuss what is happening with footcare locally, before learning about standardising pathways of care and identifying current issues in footcare and how to address them.

The main aims and objectives of the day are:

  • Learning about current delivery of MDFTs in diabetes services in London –from peer to peer reviews and Root Cause Analyses into amputations.
  • Analysing the Long Term Plan and strategy for London and foot health.
  • Sharing best practice to help implement innovative solutions for diabetic foot care services across London

The event is aimed at all those involved in diabetes care: patients; specialist foot care MDTs; clinical and non-clinical professionals; vascular teams, podiatrists; commissioners; local authorities; GPs and nurses.

Lunch and refreshments will be provided.
