Our tissue viability service in Brent aims to help those over the age of 16 and living in Brent, look after complex and problematic wounds. We particularly focus on preventing and treating pressure ulcers and leg ulcers.

We work closely with you, your GP, district nurses, and other healthcare professionals to provide you with support and high quality care.

Who we see

If you are referred to our tissue viability service, one of our specialist nurses will look at your wound. They will advise you and professionals involved in your care about how to look after it.

The tissue viability nurse may see you only once, or they may arrange a follow up visit depending on what you need.

If you need more support or advice after you have been seen by our service, your nurse or doctor can refer you again. You can also contact the service directly if you have any problems or concerns in regards to your wound.
