Priority 16 from the Foot Health PSP

UNCERTAINTY: What level of priority is given to foot health services within the National Health Service in the UK? Health Service Executive (republic of Ireland)? (JLA PSP Priority 16)
Overall ranking 16
JLA question ID 0092/16
Explanatory note This question arose from a range of raw uncertainties within the original data, where the overall view seemed to be that foot health services are seen as being given a 'low priority' and not valued within health services. It is essential to understand the value that is placed on foot health services by service providers within both primary and secondary care and how foot health services are prioritised, across the UK/ROI in order to facilitate increased awareness of the importance of foot health in the wider healthcare domain.
