The tissue viability team are a specialist nursing service for wounds that are taking a long time to heal. This includes surgical wounds, leg ulcers or pressure ulcers. We carry out assessments and identify any problems that may be delaying wounds healing.
Our team of nurses have specialist knowledge, skills and experience in wound care and tissue viability.
Our referrals come from healthcare professionals. This includes GPs, community nurses and therapists who are already involved in your care. We do not accept self-referrals.
Our team is based across the health board area. You can contact us via email on TissueViability.GGH@wales.nhs.uk
