Consultation on draft standards for the foot health workforce: summary for members

Health Education England (HEE) and the Foot Health Consortium (FHC) have launched a consultation on the draft standards for the foot health workforce.  
The College has produced a summary of the consultation document for members, which can be downloaded here:  Consultation on standards for the non-regulated foot health workforce. Summary for College of Podiatry members
We want to ensure that the whole foot health workforce can support the NHS, not only to meet demand, but to ensure that there is an understanding of the footcare treatments that foot health practitioners and the podiatry support workforce can provide safely. 
Ultimately, the needs and safety of patients are paramount. This has guided the creation of these draft standards and the HEE and the FHC in their work.
The College would like to see as many podiatrists as possible providing their views and opinions on this, so please read this document and consider responding to the consultation by midday on 15 February 2021. The College is very interested to know your views and so we would be extremely grateful if you could share your submission with us here.

The College will also be responding to the consultation as an organisation.
