The Department

The Alfred High Risk Foot Service launched in August 2021 and provides coordinated, multidisciplinary care for patients with predominantly diabetic foot complications, with a focus on preventing decline in vascular-compromised, high-risk patients. The service is considered best-practice and has been benchmarked against other health services. It will be provided via two streams: same-day admitted care, and multi-day inpatient care; resulting in more efficient and higher-quality care.

This new service provides an opportunity to create a contemporary model of care for patients aligned with the National Association of Diabetes Centres Collaborative Interdisciplinary High Risk Foot Services Standards.

The High Risk Foot Service includes clinicians from Podiatry, Departments of Endocrinology and Diabetes, Vascular Surgery, Diabetes Clinical Nurse Consultants, and Prosthetics and Orthotics with Ward Clerk support. The High Risk Foot Service Coordinator will triage referrals, oversee patient flow through the service, and ensure a coordinated approach to clinical care. The team will work with other specialist services as required to provide comprehensive and timely care for patients.

 

The Role

The Ward Clerk is responsible for the coordination of communication, patient services and clerical functions within the High-Risk Foot Service. As the first point of contact for many patients, visitors and staff, the Ward Clerk facilitates excellent customer service and is central to the efficient and effective running of the unit environment.
