Abstract A common complication of diabetes is the occurrence of foot ulcers. Good foot care can, in many instances, prevent ulcers or increase the potential to heal in those patients who do ulcerate. All healthcare professionals working with patients with diabetes should reinforce the importance of caring for the feet each time they see the patient. A focus on foot care reiterates to the patient the importance of self care and prevention of ulceration. Examination of the feet and timely referral to appropriate specialist teams are of particular importance.
