​Mansfield Has The Joint Highest Rate Of Amputations In The UK

Mansfield Has The Joint Highest Rate Of Amputations In The UK

Mansfield has the highest rate of amputations linked with people living with diabetes in the UK, joint only with Scarborough in North Yorkshire.

Diabetes suffers in Mansfield are eight times more likely to suffer an amputation due to lifestyle than residents living in other parts of the country. The area has five in every 1,000 adults with diabetes, which is eight times more than Brent in north-west London.

Amanda Sullivan is the Chief Medical Officer at the Mansfield & Ashfield Clinical Commissioning Group “We do have relatively high levels of diabetes in Mansfield and Ashfield and also we do have relatively high amputation rates due to the complications of diabetes.”

“This is an area that we have been concerned about and so we’ve looked at how the health services can work together to make the care better and prevent people from having problems such as amputations”
