Tissue Viability information for patients and professionals
The Tissue Viability service provides specialist advice and support to healthcare professionals who are managing complex wounds within the hospital and community settings managed by Calderdale and Huddersfield NHS Trust.
The nurse-led team works in partnership with patients, their carers and healthcare professionals to provide expert wound care advice, specialist healthcare equipment and education that is aimed at preventing needless skin breakdown.
The team aims to improve and support high standards of practice through clinical consultations, regular audits, development of guidelines and polices and by delivering formal educational training to healthcare professionals.
The Love Great Skin campaign was produced by Wounds UK to raise awareness of pressure ulcers in the care home and nursing home setting.
