We assess and manage patients with a non-healing leg wound of two weeks’ duration or more.

Our team of specialist registered nurses and healthcare assistants will aim to find out the cause of the leg ulcer. This involves an assessment of the ulcer and taking a full history of your health and lifestyle. This helps us to determine the best type of treatment for you.

For example, if appropriate we may use compression therapy to help the ulcer heal.  Alternatively we may refer you back to your GP for ongoing wound care.

If you are registered with a GP practice in West Somerset, Central Mendip or West Mendip, your doctor or nurse can refer you to our service for assessment and treatment of your leg ulcer.  Once we have received your details we will contact you to offer you an assessment appointment.

We aim to see all referrals within six weeks.
