Our community tissue viability service provides specialist support and advice to clinicians about your wound care and tissue integrity issues. Our service’s normal working hours are Monday to Friday, 9am to 5pm (except Bank Holidays). We accept referrals from GPs, practice nurses, acute and community services trusts, St Margaret’s Hospice (on discharge), nursing homes. We do not accept self-referrals, referrals to support inpatients in hospital acute trusts or non-NHS organisations, except nursing homes.

One of our tissue viability specialist nurses will either attend an appointment with your primary clinician or provide advice either written or via telephone.

Referrals can be accepted by email to Spn-tr.TVN@nhs.net. Patients with wounds referrals will only be triaged if the referral form is accompanied by a wound assessment / current treatment plan and photographs.
