The Welsh Wound Network will launch the first of a new series of factsheets detailing numbers, costs and consequences of common wound types. The initial factsheet will focus upon pressure ulcers and seek to provide members with references to sources of information useful for grant submissions and other fund raising initiatives. Let the Welsh Wound Network remove the time and challenge inherent on finding the latest sources of information on the burden of common wounds to the NHS, to Wales and to the individual.
