Wound Care Patient Resources

Working together, the NWCSP and Patient Experience Network (PEN) have developed a series of patient resources. These resources have been created for patients by patients through patient-led co-creation activities. PEN facilitated this work to put patients, carers and family members at the centre of shaping and improving patient care.

The patient resources cover a variety of wound care topics with input from health and care professionals and are based on experience and medical information.

The National Wound Care Strategy Programme (NWCSP) seeks to improve care for people with pressure ulcers, lower limb and surgical wounds. The Health Innovation Network’s Transforming Wound Care programme is focusing on lower limb wounds and improving patients’ access to evidence-based care.
