DESCRIPTION

What Is Wound Care Care?

Our home wound care services are for people recovering from wounds after surgery or trauma, or suffering from ulcers (diabetic, pressure or ischaemic) and who prefer to receive wound dressings at home rather than be admitted to hospital or having a prolonged stay in hospital.

  • These services are provided by registered nurses.
