Diabetic foot

The flagship diabetic foot clinic at St. Mary’s hospital is recognised as an outstanding service. It offers a multidisciplinary approach to the care of complex foot patients with input from Endocrinology (link to JV), specialist nurses, podiatry, othopaedics, orthotist, neurology, microbiology and vascular surgery. The patient outcomes are some of the best nationally. A multidisciplinary foot clinic at Charing Cross Hospital, offering the same high standard of care, has recently been established.
