    Hi All Pressure ulcers are one the highest reported incidents/ areas for investigation within my directorate and I can see both arguments for investigating to the enth degree or not at all. I sit in the middle, of course! How have the early adopters approached pressure ulcer incidents and investigating these. I know my tissue viability colleagues are slightly twitched by the changes. I welcome all thoughts and am open to ideas!

    The NHS spends £8.3 billion a year treating chronic wounds on an estimated 3.8 million people, according to the recently updated study evaluating the “Burden of Wounds” to the NHS. Costs have increased by 48% in the five years since the study was first published and the overwhelming majority of this burgeoning demand, around 80% of the caseload, impacts on community healthcare. This session chaired by Jacqui Fletcher OBE, focusses on managing the burden of wounds by focusing on prevention, and how technology and digitisation will enable a prevention focus. Prof Julian Guest will focu

    Dying patients are going without care in their own homes because of a collapse in community nursing services, new data shared with The Independent reveals. Across England a third of district nurses say they are now being forced to delay visits to end of life care patients because of surging demand and a lack of staff. This is up from just 2% in 2015. The situation means some patients may have to wait for essential care and pain medication to keep them comfortable. Other care being delayed includes patients with pressure ulcers, wounds which need treating and patients needing blocked

    A year ago, you implemented a new approach to auditing at Barnsley. Can you tell us what prompted it? In healthcare, we tend to measure safety by looking at negatives. The number of falls, the number of category 2 pressure ulcers, the number of adverse events etc. Our whole system is built on it, from local auditing and Datix reporting, to CQC inspections.
