Venous Leg Ulcers - Self Care Support Resources beneficial during social distancing

This link gives direct access to all of L&R’s key resources to watch or download including measuring forms, ordering code lists, application posters and measuring & application videos. Self help videos for patients taking care of their wound at home are also available on the site. We hope this gives you the resources you need to support your venous leg ulceration patients in these unprecedented times and whilst we socially distance ourselves from face to face support.

  • Shared Care for Wounds Document - This document is intended for health care professionals and patients/ carers working together. Supporting people with wounds to look after their own wound is likely to improve their self-confidence and quality of life. It is also a way to reduce pressure on the NHS and reduce the risk of infection.
