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 foot disease. The data are presented at NHS Clinical Commissioning Group, STP and NHS region geographies.

The format of this year’s publication is a national report. Taking a population health perspective, this report includes analysis assessing the disparities in the risk of complications among patients with diabetes, recent trends in admissions and an evaluation of the geographical variation in foot disease and amputations. It also presents analysis on how the COVID-19 pandemic has impacted hospital admissions for foot disease in patients with diabetes.

A spreasheet containing the latest update for these indicators can be found here, which contains the key indicators relating to major and minor amputations and hospital stays for diabetes footcare. It also contains trend analysis for all three indicators. Updated data is also displayed on Fingertips here. An accompanying technical document is also available; which details the methodology and details for this update.
