Diabetes foot care profiles: annual update 2020

Diabetes foot care profiles: annual update 2020

The Diabetes Foot Care Profiles presents Clinical Commissioning Group (CCG) and Sustainability and Transformation Partnership (STP) level information on diabetic lower-limb amputations and hospital admissions for diabetes-related foot disease. The data are intended to help guide equitable national, regional and local commissioning of diabetic foot care services and other preventative interventions.

The information is compiled from Hospital Episode Statistics (HES) and this latest update focuses on spells of inpatient care between 1 April 2016 and 31 March 2019.

The Diabetes Foot Care Profiles is produced by the National Cardiovascular Intelligence Network (NCVIN).

Note: due to reduced analytical capacity, influenced by the COVID-19 pandemic, the format of the 2020 publication is a simplified spreadsheet of data (rather than the previous PDF reports).

In addition, the April 2019 release of the major and minor amputations indicators (tax year 2015 to 2016 to tax year 2017 to 2018) has been replaced with the data in this workbook. A coding error was identified in the National Diabetes Audit data that supports the profiles and, therefore, they have been reissued.
