Connectivity, economy of scale and ‘not protecting your own scran’ must be at the heart of services treating diabetic foot and other foot diseases, says the Associate NMAHP Director at NHS Education for Scotland.
In the latest episode of the EDFN’s Talking Feet podcast series, David Wylie talks about the challenges of addressing inequality in foot disease service provision, how services need to re-think their approach, and how the workforce must develop to address these issues.
David, who is also an Honorary Fellow at Glasgow Caledonian University and Director of Professional Education at the Royal College of Physicians & Surgeons, Glasgow, discusses clinical and disease inequality as well as socio-economic inequality.
He said that connecting the system to more of itself and a systems leadership challenge should underpin future service provision, along with “thinking beyond the urgent, thinking beyond today”.
