In Summary 16 Hospitals have contributed to ‘the map’. There are 42 podiatry chairs in acute settings but 1/3 of the time they are not used. The majority of hospital podiatry is provided by the community service. Nearly 1/3 of hospitals have no foot MDT. The make up of MDT is various, but many hospitals have the right mix of HCPs but not necessarily in the same place at the same time. Only 2 hospitals have a radiology MDT. 2/3 hospitals have urgent access for GP patients. The majority of hospital podiatrists have access to tests/results. Casting is available in the majority of hospitals. Less than 1/2 hospitals have an orthotist available in clinic. Nearly all hospital podiatrists have access to offloading devices. Only 1/2 hospitals have an inpatient MDT which are limited in number of sessions. Topical negative pressure is available across most hospitals and community services. The 16 hospitals could only identify 10 CCGs with Foot Protection Teams. IT systems link 1/3 hospital to community services.
