To ask the Secretary of State for Health, how many people have had their feet amputated as a result of diabetes in each NHS commissioning area in each of the last five years.
25 November 2014
The attached table shows both Hospital Episode Statistics (HES) for finished consultant episodes with a primary diagnosis of diabetes and a primary or secondary procedure of amputation of the foot or toe, as well as National Diabetes Audit (NDA) figures for the number of diabetes patients in the audit having major or minor amputations the following year. The NDA figures are only available for 2009-10 and 2010-11.
Reference should be made to the notes provided with the table when interpreting these figures.
