Who we are and what we offer

The Tissue Viability Service (TVS) is a small specialist community nursing service, under the clinical leadership of a Consultant Nurse. We offer specialist advice on the management of people with non-healing wounds.  

Who the service is for

The following patients may be referred to the service if:
•    They have a wound that shows no signs of healing for four to six (4 - 6) weeks standard care has been implemented for that condition.  
•    Documentation of past and present care and investigations has been provided at time of referral.
•    The healthcare professional and their team have reached the limit of their tissue viability knowledge.  
•    Referrers keep the patient on their caseload while advice from the TVS is provided.  

How to access this service

We accept referrals from health, social services and the voluntary sector via email or post.
