An opportunity has arisen at St Georges NHS Foundation Trust for an experienced podiatrist to join our multidisciplinary team at the diabetic foot clinic.

This post offers an exciting opportunity for outstanding candidates to join a forward thinking, progressive Diabetic Foot Team, offering open access, advanced therapies and integrated MDFT care to patients with complex diabetes related foot conditions. The service aim is to ensure seamless high quality care across all settings within the care pathway and integrated care with our community foot protection colleagues.

The post holder will be expected to lead a busy outpatient clinic, delivering high quality care to patients with active diabetic foot disease. The successful candidate will work alongside two other senior podiatrists (Inpatient and Pathfinder) to manage the diabetic foot service within the hospital while providing line management and mentorship to junior podiatrists. Experience of leadership and management in previous roles is essential.


The post holder will play a leading role in the diabetic foot MDT, working alongside consultants, nursing teams, microbiology, radiology and inpatient teams to ensure best quality, evidence based care for our patients. Successful candidates will be expected to have good communication and presentation skills in order to interact with colleagues, GP’s and community partners.

The role also incorporates a considerable clinical commitment and advanced wound care techniques, including total contact casting, are employed in every day practice. Applicants must demonstrate suitable post registration experience in diabetes foot care and advanced specialist knowledge of podiatry and wound care in relation to management of the high risk patient.

This post requires high level of understanding of the roles of team members, knowledge and experience in clinical governance, audit, risk management, safeguarding, duty of candour and evidence based practise.
