Tissue Viability Service

The Tissue Viability Service operates throughout Cambridgeshire and Peterborough and aims to provide specialist advice and support for Patient's, GP's, 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's, bandaging and monitoring wounds which are taking longer to heal, we can help to prevent unnecessary admission to hospital, reduce length of stay when in hospital and improve the quality of life and outcomes for patients.
