Patients experiencing or at high risk of foot ulcers, infections or certain other conditions of the foot can access specialist appointments, tests and procedures without being admitted to hospital.
The High Risk Foot Service is a multidisciplinary clinic which includes podiatrists, pedorthist, a wound care clinical nurse consultant, diabetes nurse educator and endocrinologist, with access to vascular and orthopaedic surgeons.
We provide access to specialist multidisciplinary care in an outpatient setting for people with diabetes related foot ulcers and infections.
You will need a referral from a GP, specialist or the Nepean Blue Mountains community nursing team.
The completed referral form can be faxed to us, addressed to Dr Zheng (Endocrinologist) or to the High-Risk Foot Service. GPs and referring clinicians can access the form in the Nepean Blue Mountains LHD outpatient referral catalogue.
See the National Diabetes Services Scheme (NDSS) for more information about diagnosing and managing foot ulcers and infections.
The following clinical conditions are considered urgent:
- active or suspected charcot neuroarthropathy
- suspected osteomyelitis with or without a foot ulcer
- critical limb ischaemia.
Call us immediately if you need urgent review, or visit the Emergency Department.
