Diabetic Foot Problems/Assessments

Diabetes is a disease which can affect the foot and lower limb. People with diabetes may be at greater risk of infection. Diabetes can commonly affect the sensation in your feet. Lack of sensation where present can lead to unnoticed cuts and injuries. If you have diabetes, we would encourage daily inspection of your feet. Should you notice any cuts or skin changes it is important to get a rapid professional opinion. If you have diabetes and develop any form of foot problem please seek an appointment and alert our reception staff to the fact that you have diabetes as you will be given priority for an urgent appointment.


Diabetes can also affect the circulation to the foot. If we find a significant reduction in circulation to your feet we would refer on for specialist assessment. All patients with diabetes should be offered an annual diabetic foot screen where the circulation to the foot as well as the sensation of the foot is tested. If you are not able to obtain an NHS foot screen all of our practitioners can provide a thorough diabetic foot screen/assessment.

Me and my son have been visiting Louise at the Leyland centre for a number of years.

I have been seeing Louise for a complex muscle wasting disease for nearly a year now. She has been helping to reduce pain in my back, shoulder and neck area. This week I had the muscle building treatment and I can honestly say that my posture is so much better and I can now lift my arms without any pain. I cannot wait to see what the future brings. Thank you so much Louise.

Today I had a long overdue ingrowing toenail issue resolved with Gold Standard footcare. Louise was a a brilliant example of a professional that takes pride in their work and made the whole procedure painless and relaxing. As a person that has had a previously bad experience on the NHS that left me worried about the procedure I can assure anyone going for nail surgery that with Gold Standard footcare you have nothing to worry about and the experience will be pain free and quick. Thank you Louise.
