New process for podiatry referrals

From Tuesday 4th January 2022 all Podiatry referrals should be sent electronically via Lincolnshire Elective Activity Coordination Hub (EACH). Referrals will be triaged by LCHS clinicians’ and processed accordingly.

Patients may be diverted to secondary care, Community Surgical Scheme, or podiatric surgery if this is deemed most appropriate. The EACH will divert the referral on behalf of the practice.

This process is the same for referrals to the Multi-disciplinary Diabetic Foot Team (MDFT) clinic at ULHT.  MDFT referrals should go to podiatry for clinical triage, and not be sent straight to the MDFT.

Patients can still self-refer directly to podiatry, and podiatry will triage appropriately, and EACH will refer onwards as required.
