Written answers (Question to Health)

I propose to take Questions Nos. 202 to 210, inclusive, and 224 to 228, inclusive, together.

The National Clinical Programme for Diabetes, which includes the care of children and adolescents with diabetes and which has been established within the HSE's Clinical Strategy and Programmes Directorate, aims to define the way clinical services for diabetes should be delivered, resourced and measured. A clinician has been appointed to lead on the development of the programme. One of the objectives of the National Clinical Programme for Diabetes is to develop a footcare screening and treatment service to prevent foot ulceration and subsequent lower limb amputation. In relation to the specific queries raised by the Deputy, I have asked the Health Service Executive to respond directly to the Deputy in this matter.
