REGIONAL VARIATIONS IN DIABETES AMPUTATIONS

That this House is deeply concerned by the regional variations in the number of amputations due to diabetes; notes that diabetes sufferers in certain areas are 10 times more likely to have an amputation than those in others; further notes that it is estimated that 80 per cent. of amputations due to diabetes are preventable with the right care and there are therefore approximately 80 preventable amputations due to diabetes a week; is alarmed by the fact that research shows these regional variations are related to the way care is organised; and calls on the Government to support a 50 per cent. reduction in amputations over five years and establish a specialist foot care team in every hospital in the UK.

  • Session: 2010-12
  • Date tabled: 23.03.2012
  • Primary sponsor: Cooper, Rosie
  • Sponsors:

    at end add `further notes that the Society of Chiropodists and Podiatrists, the professional body and trade union for the UK's 10,000 podiatrists, wholeheartedly supports Diabetes UK's excellent Putting Feet First campaign; further notes that in addition to 26 per cent of hospitals lacking an in-house podiatry service, there is also wide variation in numbers of NHS podiatrists per head of population with instances of high incidence of amputation and low staffing levels; and further calls on these workforce factors to be part of a Department of Health review of NHS diabetes efforts to improve service provision including reductions in the wide variation in minor and major amputations.'.
