This conference focuses on improving the management of chronic wounds, a condition affecting 2.2 million people and costing the NHS more than £5bn per year. This important and timely conference will look at ensuring effective assessment, promoting healing and improving the quality of life for people with chronic wounds in line the ambitions of the National Wound Care Strategy Programme. 

“There are an estimated 2.2 million people living with non-healing wounds in the UK and caring for them costs the NHS upwards of £5bn a year – roughly what it spends on treating obesity.” 

The Guardian 2019

“Too often, patients with chronic wounds are not being offered the care that is known to promote healing, improve quality of life and make the best use of NHS resources.”
