COVID-19 Significantly disrupts patient access to health professionals

‘People with diabetes-related foot ulcers are encouraged to remain in close contact with their 

High Risk Foot Services.’ᶧ

In the current health crisis patient access to their usual health care professionals for their foot conditions has been significantly disrupted. To assist clinicians and patients, FootForward and the Australian Podiatry Association have developed The Australian Directory for High Risk Foot and Podiatry Services.

The directory and map are designed to provide service information to support health care professionals and patients in locating local High Risk Foot and Podiatry Services currently open to assist with foot care.

This is of particular importance to people with active foot problems such as foot ulceration, callus or deformed nails, which require regular review to reduce the risk of deterioration.
