The Tissue Viability Service operates throughout Cambridgeshire and Peterborough and aims to support patients, GPs, practice nurses, district nurses and other healthcare professionals in the management of complex wounds, particularly the prevention and treatment of pressure ulcers.

By the early assessment and management of wounds, for example leg ulcer care, dressing, bandaging and monitoring wounds which are taking longer to heal, we can help to prevent unnecessary admission to hospital, reducing length of stay when in hospital and improve the quality of life and outcomes for patients.

For more information on preventing pressure ulcers, please see the link at the foot of this page.

If you have any questions about the services or would like to make a referral you can contact the team on 0330 726 0077.
