What is it about?

This trail-blazing national NHS conference will focus on developing standardisation across wound care services. Build on your understanding of ulcer care to bridge the gap between community and acute services, reduce variability and increase accessibility. Throughout this unique day, you will share best practice and workable ideas for tackling variation, improving time to heal and reducing amputations.        

Why should you come?

This NHS conference has been specially crafted to optimise your ulcer care practice and streamline your service through collaborative work. Throughout the day you will be encouraged to reflect on your good practice, national wound care strategies and patient pathways.

  • Improving access and standards: the importance of early treatment with GIRFT and the national wound care strategy
  • Reducing variation in service delivery: tackling inequality and delivering clinical standards across acute services
