" I felt that the service was very thorough"

About: Rotherham PCT / Tissue viability service

(as the patient),

I cut my leg in July and the following day I attended the walk in centre.

I was given two courses of antibiotics and my leg was steri stripped and a dressing applied.The following week I returned and was told to leave it open to heal without a dressing.

In early August I was seen by Tissue Viability - Helen, who gave me a full assessment and applied a dressing and advised me to wear compression stockings.

After being seen by Tissue Viability the wound is now healing. I felt that the service was very thorough.
