Procedure for signing off the amendments and consultation report.
Following analysis, the suggested amendments to the Standards were presented to a representative subgroup of the writing group (see the Consultation on standards for the non–regulated foot health workforce p.16 and the Draft Standards for the Foot Health Workforce p.6). Once the amendments had been agreed with the writing group, both the consultation report, and the amended Standards document were presented to the Foot Health Education and Training Standards Group (FHESG) – the group who oversaw the writing of the Standards (see the Consultation on standards for the non–regulated foot health workforce, 3.1 p.17).
Finally, both the amended Standards and consultation report document passed through a two stage sign off process with the Foot Health Consortium. The first stage provided an opportunity for the foot health leaders to consult with their respective organisations, and at the second stage the Foot Health Consortium collectively signed off both the amended Standards and the consultation report.
