National Wound Care Programme opportunities

The National Wound Care Strategy Programme (NWCSP) is looking to recruit a Board level PPV partner and three Clinical Workstream PPV partners – one for each clinical workstream – Stop the pressure (pressure ulcers); Lower limb ulcers (leg and foot ulcers); and Surgical wounds.

The key missions for the NWCSP are to develop:

  • Recommendations about how to improve patient care;
  • Better ways to obtain wound care dressings and other treatments for wounds;
  • Better education and information for people who deliver wound care and for patients and carers;
  • Better ways of measuring what is happening to help improve care.

More information about the NWCSP can be found at: www.nationalwoundcarestrategy.net

These voluntary roles require attendance at meetings every two months (locations vary but dial-in facilities are often available) with some occasional advisory input between meetings. The roles do attract an involvement payment and reimbursement for reasonable expenses. If you are interested and require further information please contact Joanne Healey, HR Coordinator at Yorkshire & Humber AHSN (email – joanne.healey@yhahsn.com or phone 07951 386920) for an information pack and application form.

Closing date for completed applications to be returned is Friday 20 September at 12 noon.
