Diabetic foot assessment is an important check-up which should be performed by a podiatrist at least annually for all patients who suffer from either Type 1 or Type 2 diabetes. This assessment is performed in-office in order to evaluate the peripheral nerves and blood circulation which can become affected by diabetes and require intervention in order to prevent any unwanted foot complications. Patients who suffer from diabetes or other chronic health conditions affecting the feet can be referred for regular podiatric care by their GP under an Enhanced Primary Care Plan or Team Care Arrangement. This will enable patients to claim back a portion of their consultation fee through Medicare for up to 5 visits per calendar year.
