The Care Inspectorate is hosting two webinars in February which will focus on foot health. We will be joined by podiatrists who will advise on personal footcare (how to carry out footcare and who should provide this care) and how to prevent avoidable harm (pressure damage) to feet. The webinars are open to all but they will be particularly useful for staff working in care home and care at home services.

Webinar 1: Personal Footcare
