Leg Ulcer Guidelines Events
Vicky Storey, Senior District Nurse, is keen to share the key areas of learning from her leg ulcer guideline development work.
Vicky has arranged the following sessions to update colleagues in the different localities:
Mon 19th March 11 - 1.30 pm Holiday Inn, Brighouse (Lower Valley)
Tues 20th March 11.30 - 1pm Beechwood Medical Centre, Ovenden (Central Halifax)
Weds 21st March 12 - 1.30 pm Grange Dene Medical Centre, Mytholmroyd (Upper Valley)
Primary care colleagues are encouraged to attend any of the above sessions, each of which provide some educational element as well as networking and sharing of relevant information about making appropriate lower limb referrals. The flyers attached provide more details and can be downloaded to share with others.
Vicky strongly believes that if we are able to ensure more timely referrals for patients with lower limb wounds, and we can assess and treat them sooner, we could significantly reduce wound healing times for many patients.
Vicky would very much appreciate your support and assistance with this, if anyone expresses an interest in attending please provide numbers and attendees names to Vicky at: Vicky.Storey@cht.nhs.uk.
A lunch will be provided so catering numbers will need confirming.
