Tissue viability (wound management)

The Tissue Viability service is a nurse led expert advisory service providing specialist evidenced based advice on complex and non-healing wounds. We provide advice to patients, families, carers and healthcare professionals.

All patients of any age are eligible for referral to our service, if registered with a North, Mid or East Devon GP and meet the referral criteria. Referrals are taken from both allied health professionals and directly from patients.

Tissue Viability visits are conducted in a variety of care settings which include acute inpatients, independent clinics, community hospitals, care homes, GP surgeries and patients' own homes. We also offer specialist advice to other healthcare professionals.
