From the Lords to the wards

Wound care is a topic close to all of our hearts and so it was with great interest that I followed the debate in the UK House of Lords in November tabled by Lord Hunt of Kings Heath regarding what plans the UK government has to develop a strategy for improving the standards of wound care in the NHS. Baroness Wheeler stood in for the absent Lord Hunt in the Lords, beginning by urging the government to “recognise the need for urgent action and for the development of a strategy across care providers for improving the standards of wound care” (House of Lords Hansard, 2017).
