Podiatry Service Saves Lives, and Limbs

 

A ground breaking service in New Zealand is improving the lives of hundreds of people with diabetes and helping reduce the number of amputations.

The service, which started in December 2012, enables those with the risk of foot disease to be treated for free by specially accredited podiatrists. To date nearly 2,000 people have been treated through the service, which is delivered in partnership with PodiatryNZ.
