To ask the Secretary of State for Health and Social Care, how many lower limb amputations associated with peripheral arterial disease and diabetes have taken place in the NHS in each year since 2008-09; and how many of those amputations have taken place in each (a) strategic health authority area prior to 2012-13 and (b) clinical commissioning group area since 2012-13 .
NHS Digital have provided us with data that detail a count of finished consultant episodes, with a primary diagnosis of diabetes or peripheral arterial disease and a main procedure of lower limb amputation. These are tabulated by strategic health authority area for the financial years between 2008-09 and 2011-12 and clinical commissioning group for treatment for the financial years between 2012-13 and 2016-17.
The Clinical Coding team have advised that I73.9 - Peripheral vascular disease unspecified includes but is not limited to peripheral arterial disease.
Tables and data are attached.
