Thanks for taking the time to visit my JustGiving page.

I have been nursing people with & at risk of wounds for the past 35 years and have witnessed the suffering this can cause to , often, the most vulnerable in our society and to all ages.

Such chronic wounds can be , bed sores or pressure ulcers, surgical wounds that have burst open, leg ulcers, fungating tumours, abscesses, fistulas, burns etc... Healing is complicated by people often  having  multiple medical conditions and can occur anywhere on the body. Wounds can be socially isolating, painful,  smelly, exude body fluids , debilitating and require special skills and training to care for and treat. 

This is why I am committed to support the Tissue Viability Society charity which aims to empower carers, multi professionals, health care students,  and people with & at risk of wounds by promoting & sharing quality independent research & providing  education and training via study days, conferences, clinical guidelines, social media and website aid the delivery of best care to people with wounds   It also supports people with wounds by providing expert advice  at national level to the NHS & government bodies.

Experts in the field such as specialist clinicians , nurses, academics, lecturers, researchers , podiatrists, therapists, donate their time and skills to the charity on top of their regular demanding employment to lead this much needed work. The charity receives no money from the NHS or government to fund this great work.

Money raised will help people treat, heal and prevent wounds affecting vulnerable people in our society. This could easily be yourself or a loved one.
