Is wound care provision equitable?

26/06/13 | Assessment and diagnosis, Education, Service delivery | Jacqui Fletcher, Karen Ousey

It seems that 2013 has started really well. Firstly, we had a very well-attended pressure ulcer conference in Manchester which sold out several weeks in advance and received fabulous feedback from both delegates and industry. There has been funding for two major new national initiatives: the Welsh Wound Innovation Centre (BBC, 2013) and the NIHR Bradford Healthcare Technology Co-operative in Wound Prevention and Treatment (Telegraph & Argus, 2013). Although different, both of these initiatives are focusing on standardising care so that every patient has a chance of receiving high-quality care, wherever they are in the UK.
