To search for a specific item enter a keyword that may appear in either the title or summary.

Database entry is very quick and easy, see the Database Quick Guide for further support.

  • Enter a keyword to narrow your search e.g. Category Mental Health and Keyword Parity 

Making wound care work: rebuilding services for the 3.8 million people living with a wound in the UK

The Patients Association
Year of publication
This report, published jointly with the company Mölnlycke, found that around 28 per cent of patients are managing their own wounds due to the pandemic. The report (based on a survey and interview with patients, and a survey of wound care nurses) also found that the majority (88 per cent) of nurses fear that Covid-19 has had a negative impact on wound care services and eight out of ten are worried about the delays it has caused to appointments, and the knock-on effect of delays to patient outcomes.
