That this House notes with concern that around 125 amputations are carried out every week on people with diabetes because of complications connected with their condition and that, as well as the devastating impact this has on the person, these amputations are currently costing the NHS between 600 million and 700 million every year; further notes that 80 per cent of these amputations are potentially preventable and that this cost can be significantly reduced with better care; and therefore calls on the Government to support the Putting Feet First campaign which highlights that amputations can be prevented and underlines how important it is for people with diabetes to get regular foot checks and treatment from a specialist foot care team when a foot problem is identified and which aims to reduce diabetes-related amputations by 50 per cent in the next five years.
