Tissue Viability

Tissue Viability is a specialist nursing service for wounds that are taking a long time to heal, such as a surgical wound, leg ulcer or pressure ulcer. We carry out assessments and identify any problems that may contribute to delays in wounds healing.

Our team of nurses have specialist knowledge, skills and experience in wound care and tissue viability. Our expert tissue viability nurses provide advice and education on wound management and pressure ulcers prevention. This includes

  • advice on wound management (e.g. treatment and dressing choices).
  • leg ulcer assessment and management
  • pressure ulcer assessment and management
  • prevention of pressure ulcers
