About the Programme

The National Wound Care Strategy programme (NWCSP) seeks to improve care for people with wounds.

Our aim is to:

  • Reduce patient suffering.
  • Improve healing rates.
  • Prevent wounds occurring and recurring.
  • Use clinical time and other health and care resources in the most effective way.

NWCSP Publications

We are developing a range of resources to help health and care professionals deliver better wound care and to help patients and carers understand what good care looks like and how to help care for their wounds.

Improving Wound Care

We are working with hospitals, community hospitals, community nursing, general practice, care homes and home care providers in our First Tranche Implementation sites to understand the challenges and develop solutions for improving wound care.

CQUIN

Leg ulceration and pressure ulcer risk assessment are included in the 2022/23 CCG CQUIN scheme. 

These resources support those involved in CQUIN implementation.
