Referral

Patients with low ABPIs/suspected arterial ulcers should be referred to the vascular surgeons via e-referral.

There is a vascular hot clinic for more urgent concerns (e.g. infected diabetic leg or foot ulcers with vascular compromise) . Urgent patients can also be referred via the vascular network office telephone 0117 414 0798 or by discussion with either the General Surgery/Vascular Surgery Registrar on call.

For advice on management on non-arterial leg ulcers then please see the Leg Ulcer section in Dermatology
