Home » Compression resource for people with wounds

The National Wound Care Strategy Programme has been working with the Health Innovation Network’s Transforming Wound Care programme and the Patient Experience Network to translate its compression resource into some of the most spoken languages in England and Wales, to suit a range of language preferences.

The resource provides a guide to compression for people with venous leg ulcers, explaining why compression therapy is useful and how to use it.

This guide has been translated into twelve languages, with funding from Health Innovation East.
