Wound care training - Secondary Care




Facilitated by registered nurses with first hand clinical experience, our ‘Wound Care’ course can be delivered within a half-day session (Essentials) or a comprehensive full-day course (Fundamentals) for senior carers or registered healthcare professionals.

This blended learning course allows attendees to gain theoretical and practical understanding of wound care best practice.

This training course is intended to cover all aspects of wound care including practical application within a classroom environment. 

why is it important?

2 million patients are treated for wounds every year at a cost of more than £5 billion to the NHS. Most of this figure pays for nursing care costs rather than dressings and associated products.


This cost is more than the spend on tackling obesity, which is the centre of major national campaigns. Treatment costs include more than 700,000 leg ulcers and 80,000 burns. Pressure ulcers also feature highly, with estimates of an 11% increase overall each year (Hansard, 2017).
