Attending your annual foot check with your GP helps you catch the signs early, and prevent damage before it starts.
If you’re living with diabetes you have an increased risk of developing foot problems because of damage to the nerve (feeling or sensation) and blood vessels in your feet. The good news is that in most cases you can avoid these problems by checking your feet daily and having a foot check at least every year by your GP practice.
A diabetes foot check is usually undertaken at your GP practice by your healthcare team and is part of your annual diabetes cycle of care. Your healthcare team will check your feet, discuss your results and help you understand your risk of developing a foot problem.
Every person with diabetes should have their feet checked every year by their GP practice even if they see a podiatrist regularly or a specialist high-risk foot clinic.
