Supporting Stop Pressure Ulcers Day

Pressure ulcers can be devastating for the people they affect, they cause pain and distress and reduce a person’s ability to get on with their day-to-day lives. Pressure ulcers can affect people of all ages and make them vulnerable to infections.   Most pressure ulcers are preventable. Knowing how pressure ulcers form, how they are treated and most importantly how they can be prevented is the key to reducing the burden on patients and carer’s and reducing costs to the NHS.  We have invested in supporting pressure ulcers education and training. You can find out resources at our website.
