Diabetes-related foot disease causes significant morbidity and those in rural areas are disproportionately affected. Total contact casts (TCC) or walkers made irremovable (iTCC) are the gold standard for managing neuropathic foot ulceration but are under-utilised, particularly in rural areas. The aim of this study was to evaluate a podiatrist-led service model (“PodCast”) for providing TCCs and iTCCs in a rural and regional setting.
