Once you have been referred to us, we will work to:
We involve all those in our team who are relevant to your care needs. Our specialists will work with you in setting your goals so that your care plan is comprehensive and most importantly, achievable.
We also take time to ensure that you and your carers understand your personal care needs. It is important that there is continuity in your care between visits to or from us. To support your care, a number of useful resources are listed on our wound care information page.
Applying compression is often the most effective way of enabling a lower limb wound to heal. We work with you to find a level of compression that is both as comfortable for you as possible whilst also effective in its aim. We continuously look to make improvements and innovations in compression therapy.
Depending on the location and mobility of our patients, we will treat in clinics or in the community. Our Treatment Centre formally opened in 2015 and is a clinical centre of excellence. When you are referred to us we will work out with you to determine the best place of treatment.
Alongside you, your family or carers, we will liaise with your GP, Practice Nurse, District Nurse, appropriate allied healthcare professionals as appropriate to ensure you receive the best possible continuity of care.
How long we work with you is entirely dependent on your wound care needs. Unless there are good reasons to discontinue working together, we will work with you until you are healed or well on the way to healing and can manage your on-going care plan.
