How we care
for you

Making an appointment

When you’ve made a decision that you’d like to have your wound cared for at home, your doctor will make a referral to us. Please then book an appointment by contacting us here (link to contact page) or by calling 020 777 7777. You will then receive an email or SMS with the date, time and name of the nurse who will be visiting you.

During the visit

Our staff will arrive at your home in a timely manner and call if a delay is anticipated. The visiting nurse will assess, clean and dress your wound, as well as answering any concerns you may have or questions about self-care. In many cases one visit is all that is required but further visits will be scheduled according to your requirements.

Recovery

Once we are satisfied you are healing well, we will discharge you from our care and inform your doctor of the service you have received.

Tips for

Do not smoke.
Ensure pain medication and antibiotics are taken regularly as prescribed.
Get plenty of rest, but take regular, non-strenuous exercise.
