Wound Awareness Week 2021

Wound Awareness Week is celebrated from the 23rd to the 29th August 2021.

Wound Awareness Week is a chance for all of us to stop and think about healing wounds. Over 420 000 Australians suffer from a chronic wound every year. The warning signs of a chronic wound are:

  • Pain and heat
  • Smell
  • Slow healing
  • Excess fluid

A chronic wound can be healed with the right treatment. We can help you with that treatment.
