mywound Patient Support Programme
The skin is the largest organ of the body. Acting as a barrier from the outside world, it keeps the body protected from infections and temperature changes. Injuries can damage this protective layer, leading to wounds, scarring and potential risks such as infection. Wound care is of the utmost importance following a burn, surgery or injury to limit the chance of infection and preserve the skins function. Further to the advice a medical professional will provide following an injury or burn, self-management techniques are important to help you take control of your health. If you’re looking for additional support in managing your wound, then sign-up for talkhealth’s mywound Patient Support Programme today.
If you join our mywound support programme between now and the end of August, you will have the chance of being selected to received one of 1000 free gifts.
The mywound programme is designed to provide you with supportive weekly information, from medical professionals, charities and talkhealth.
