Phil Martin is a 62-year-old father of four and chief executive oἀcer for a hospitality equipment company in Cambridge. Seeing Phil in his suit and tie, one would never know that less than 4 months ago, he was being discharged from the hospital where he spent 3 months being treated for one of the largest and most complex wounds the tissue viability team at Hinchingbrooke Hospital, Huntingdon, had ever seen. Through interviews, this is the story of the positive attitude and the creative medical and nursing team that saved Phil’s life.
