Urgent Wound Care Services

We are able to provide routine and urgent basic wound dressings dependent on appointment availability. For more complex dressings and where you need to be seen urgently please refer use the alternative services listed below.

Please try to avoid attending walk-in and urgent care centres during their busiest hours i.e. after 4pm as they may not be able to do the dressing change and may ask to come back at another time.
