Pinnacle MHN contract directly with Waikato community podiatrists to provide care for patients with diabetes who have a high-risk foot.
All patients who meet the high-risk criteria can have an initial appointment at which point both clinical judgement and their ability to self-manage and self-fund will determine further treatment.
Sessions are capped at four per patient, per year, to ensure sustainability of the service.
Referral is directly from general practice to the providers via e-Referral.
