“Wound Awareness Week” is a nationally recognised initiative to promote the importance of talking about wounds – especially the wounds that won’t heal! Talking about wounds is important as wounds affect everyone – do you know the wound warning signs?

Nexus District Nursing encourages members of the community to talk about their wound, ask for help, and most of all join together to BE WOUND WISE. With help you will find out that wounds don’t have to be for life and with treatment your quality of life will improve.
