Overview

What we need
Podiatry Foot Protection Services are pivotal in delivering comprehensive services to improve foot care outcomes for patients with diabetes. The Podiatry Foot Protection Service will provide specialist podiatric expertise in direct care delivery and in the management of the patient population with diabetes related foot pathology. Importantly, delivery of this care will span the foot risk spectrum from the moderate risk to active risk foot. Podiatrists delivering this contract will also be active members of a specialist multidisciplinary foot care team.

What’s important to us
Taranaki DHB is looking for qualified and experienced podiatrists who have the capability, experience and necessary infrastructure to deliver the Podiatry Foot Protection Services contract. A good track record in the management of the diabetic foot, a strong sense of initiative and willingness to develop relationships will be important, as is a strong understanding of cultural safety and ability to work with Māori to support Māori health gains and reduce health inequities.
