We deliver strategic and operational insights for decision makers in the UK public and private acute and mental health hospital sectors

Wound Care Conference 2023

As we grapple with the rising burden of chronic wounds in the UK, PPP is excited to bring together key stakeholders from across the UK at a half-day, in-person conference that aims to examine how we can improve wound care by breaking silos, delivering on joint-up care and raising the salience of the challenges.

Following on from this year’s series of four roundtables focusing on challenges and opportunities within wound care, the conference will serve as the launch of our flagship wound care report. We will discuss opportunities for efficiency gains and produce recommendations for reducing inequalities of access and outcomes for chronic wounds.

The PPP Wound Care Conference will provide an invaluable opportunity for our delegates and speakers to engage in a dynamic dialogue on how we can go further for wound healing, and improve outcomes, costs and population health through delivering better wound care.
