Abstract

P84 Is social deprivation associated with lower limb amputation secondary to diabetic foot disease?JS HAYES1, C Topliss1, D Price1, J Stephens1,21Morriston Hospital, ABMU, Swansea, UK, 2Diabetes Research Unit Cymru, Swansea, UKAims: To determine amputation rates and investigate the hypothesised link between social deprivation and amputation in patients with diabetes within a health board in the United Kingdom.Methods: A population of people with diabetes attending a secondary care clinic (n = 2,073) were identified between 2006 and 2010.
