About the Programme
The National Wound Care Strategy programme (NWCSP) seeks to improve care for people with wounds.
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.
Leg ulceration and pressure ulcer risk assessment are included in the 2022/23 CCG CQUIN scheme.
Information for patients
These patient resources cover a variety of wound care topics.
