This includes people who are receiving care from GP's, District Nurses, Practice Nurses and Nurses employed in the private sector.
The team works closely with other health care professionals, family / carers to agree a care plan that is achievable and practical to encourage the best outcomes.
We also provide training for health care professionals to support them in caring for people who are at high risk of tissue breakdown; people who have complex wounds and those who have delayed healing.
To promote the best possible treatment options for non-healing wounds in order to improve patient health and quality of life.
