The Cambridge Vascular Unit is one of the busiest units in the UK in terms of index vascular procedures with strong clinical outcomes. The unit comprises 8 Vascular Surgeons and 6 Interventional Radiologists. There is close collaboration between these specialists. Furthermore the well established links to local DGHs allows dedicated interventional training without any competition from other trainees. We have a multidisciplinary diabetic foot team that reviews all ward patients weekly and has a monthly busy multidisciplinary foot clinic. We also undertake diabetic foot services in our spoke hospitals.
