This profile presents statistics on people with diabetes in England, who were admitted to hospital for foot disease. The profile includes a range of analysis covering risk, treatment and outcomes relating to diabetic foot disease. The data are presented at NHS Clinical Commissioning Group and STP geographies.

In 2020, several data outputs produced by PHE were affected by COVID-19. This has caused a delay to the scheduled update of this profile, due to capacity issues. In addition, the format of this year’s publication is a spreadsheet, which contains the key indicators relating to major and minor amputations and hospital stays for diabetes footcare, rather than the usual CCG reports.

This spreadsheet can be accessed here. Updated data is also displayed on Fingertips here. An accompanying technical document is also available; which details the methodology and details for this update.

Correction Notice:
Please note that the April 2019 release of major and minor amputations indicators (time period 2015/16 - 2017/18) has been re-issued. A coding error has been identified in the National Diabetes Audit data that supports the profiles and therefore the data has been re-issued. The 2020 spreadsheet displays the CCGs which have been affected most by this re-issue.
