Wounds are sores or breaks in your skin like ulcers. Sores are caused by pressure, tears on your skin or wounds that haven’t healed properly after an operation. Many wounds and skin problems heal more quickly and cause less problems if they are treated early by a nurse or doctor.
Our nurses can help you with your wound by:
- looking at what caused your wound and helping you to address the problem
- working with you to plan what can be done by yourself or your carer to make sure that your wound is managed in the best way possible
- working with your doctor and other health service providers to make sure that your treatment involves all the people looking after you
- helping you to choose the most suitable and cost effective wound care products for your wound
It is never too early to get help to look after your skin.
