How we can help
It’s especially important to look after your feet if you have Diabetes as injuries do not heal as well and you may not notice if you have a loss of feeling (peripheral neuropathy).
Get a yearly check-up
The NHS recommends that you get a diabetes foot check-up at least once a year.
Our Diabetes check up includes:
- A full podiatry check-up
- Vascular assessment
- Neuropathy checks
- Treatments plan (if required)
Don’t wait to get a foot problem checked out.

See us ASAP
You should book an appointment urgently if:
- you notice tears in the skin of your foot or discharge seeping from a wound
- the skin over any part of your foot changes colour and becomes more red, blue, pale or dark
- you notice new swelling in your feet where there was an injury or blister
- there is redness or swelling around an ulcer or an area where you have been told to seek immediate attention previously.
Diabetic foot advice
- Don’t go barefoot
- Check your feet for wounds daily
- Get any new wounds checked ASAP
- Check your shoes for things that could damage your feet before you put them on
If you need urgent care
If you are in severe pain or are concerned about infection please call the NHS 111 helpline for immediate advice.
If you believe you need urgent care please call 999.
Sepsis is life-threatening. It can be hard to spot.
If you think you or someone you look after has symptoms of sepsis, call 999 or go to A&E. Trust your instincts.
