Chronic wounds, such as leg and pressure ulcerations, are strongly associated with age and cardiovascular risk factors, and can have a devastating effect on people’s quality of life. Treating these conditions is also a huge drain on the NHS, and currently accounts for up to 4% of its budget.
It’s hardly surprising then, that reducing pressure ulcers is a key government target and measured as a quality indicator. At the Skin Integrity Research Centre, we’re developing novel compression systems to improve patient care, carrying out clinical studies on the use of new treatments and providing the evidence to improve wound-healing services.
Exploring the prevalence, impact and cost of wound care to provide commissioning groups with the evidence to improve service delivery.
