Tissue viability nurse providing chronic wound care and pressure ulcer care in an NHS healthcare social enterprise

Clinical health psychology

We recognise that living with chronic wounds and lymphoedema can impact both physical and mental wellbeing.

That is why clinical health psychology is included in our multidisciplinary team in our complex clinic. Understanding what you feel and believe about your condition is as important as understanding the physical aspects.

Care for your wellbeing

Our clinical psychologist joins our complex clinic to support initial assessments and to increase awareness of how mental wellbeing might be impacted.

We work with you to understand any mental distress the impact of living with chronic wounds and lymphoedema may be causing. We also understand that engagement with treatment and health services may be unsettling.

Our aim is to consider your needs holistically so that you stand the best chance of moving from illness to wellness and achieving a better and sustainable quality of life.
