"Great care for my damaged toes"

About: Eastern and Coastal Kent PCT / Podiatry Queen Elizabeth The Queen Mother Hospital / Diabetic medicine

(as the patient),

I am a diabetic wheelchair bound amputee and the toes on my right foot became ulcerated due to my shoe rubbing. I called the podiatry service and they did a wonderful job dressing my toes and called back several times. I then got a referral to the orthotic service who supplied me with a soft comfortable orthotic shoe. I am now fully healed with a comfortable shoe, thanks to Adam of the podiatry service, Graham of the orthotic service and my GP practice in westgate.
