Tissue viability service

Please be aware that our adult services are currently affected by the coronavirus outbreak.  Please check here for the latest service information and contact details.

The tissue viability service aims to support patients, GPs, Practice Nurses, District Nurses and other healthcare professionals in the management of complex wounds, particularly the prevention and treatment of pressure ulcers.

By the early assessment and management of wounds, for example leg ulcer care, dressing, bandaging and monitoring wounds which are taking longer to heal, we can help to prevent unnecessary admission to hospital, reducing length of stay when in hospital and improve the quality of life and outcomes for patients.
