Diabetes is one of the most common chronic health issues affecting the population of the UK and its prevalence is increasing. By 2025, it is estimated that 5 million people in the UK will have diabetes. The life expectancy of people with diabetes is shortened by up to 15 years and 75% die of macrovascular complications.
NG19 is a guideline published by NICE (National Institute for Health and Care Excellence, updated in 2019). It is intended for healthcare professionals caring for people with diabetes. The purpose of the guidance is to prevent and manage foot problems in people with diabetes. It is intended that every person who is diabetic should have at least an annual foot check, but many patients report that this is not offered to them as intended.
