Review decision date: August 2011

An update of this guideline is underway to coincide with publication of the four diabetes guidelines currently being updated.

Diabetic footcare (update of CG10 and CG119)

Next review date: January 2014

The NICE clinical guideline on type 2 diabetes – footcare makes recommendations about:

  • educating people with type 2 diabetes and carers about foot problems
  • what is meant by being ‘at risk? of foot problems and how people at risk are identified
  • prevention of foot problems
  • detection of foot problems
  • care for people with type 2 diabetes who have foot problems

The NICE guideline does not cover the care of people with foot problems who do not have type 2 diabetes, nor does it cover surgical procedures such as amputation or rehabilitation after amputation.
