Tissue Viability Service


The Tissue Viability Service supports patients with wounds such as bed sores, leg ulcers, diabetic wounds, and other wounds that have failed to heal over time.

 

Our Specialist Nurses are trained in advanced wound care. They provide specialist advice and support to health and social care professionals treating patients with a non-healing or chronic wound.

 

How does the service work?

 

If you have a non-healing or slow healing wound, with your consent, your healthcare professional (eg Community Nurse, Podiatrist, GP etc) will contact us for specialist advice and support.

 

One of our specialist nurses will arrange an assessment appointment to find out more about your wound, your current treatment plans and to discuss any concerns or queries you might have. You will be seen in your usual place of treatment (eg home, clinic or GP practice).

 

You will be given information about the best treatment for your wounds, including tips about what you can do to help your condition, and together with your healthcare professional we will develop a wound care plan.

Referrals

 

You can be referred by you healthcare professional eg Community Nurse, Podiatrist, GP or Practice Nurse, Care Home RGN and other allied health professionals using the Tissue Viability referral form (NOTE: Only healthcare professionals are able to access this form).
