PPP Specialist Series

Going further for wound healing

PPP’s wound care series examines the impact of chronic wounds on patients, professionals and systems in the health and social care services.  It aims to explore the unmet needs in wound care, break down silos between the frontline and leadership, and help to transform the delivery of wound care.

Wound healing

The UK is grappling with the rising burden of chronic wounds. Wound care represents the third highest expense for the NHS, after cancer and diabetes, and cost the NHS £8.3 billion in 2017/18. It is believed this cost is now closer to £10 billion a year. Despite this, wound care is not included in any Integrated Care Board strategic objectives or Quality and Outcomes Framework points.

Through four roundtables convened by PPP between April to June this year, experts from around the country discussed the challenges and opportunities to improve outcomes in wound care. The recommendations from these events are now being brought together in a PPP Report which will discussed through three panel debates at the PPP Wound Care Conference 2023 on 19 October in London.
