Welcome to the Wound Care Alliance UK website

The Wound Care Alliance UK (WCAUK) is a charity with the remit of supporting the delivery of well-informed high quality care by clinicians well versed in the principles of best practices in all aspects of Tissue Viability.

 

We are a charitable organisation providing training and education by experienced wound care professionals for the non - specialist which can then be applied in any care setting.

The primary objective of the WCAUK is the development and promotion of multi-disciplinary best practice in the prevention, assessment, management and maintenance of wounds.

We aim to provide a range of accessible Tissue Viability information and resources for individuals including compression hosiery, dressing selection, skin tears, wound assessment and pressure ulcer prevention. Articles written by WCAUK trustees are published in the British Journal of Nursing Tissue Viability supplement, a copy of which is sent to all registered members.
 
Central to our events are the Annual Conference and Skills Day which are promoted on this website.  Those held during recent years have been well attended with positive evaluations.  If you wish to attend any future events, you are encouraged to book early.
 
Join WCAUK and make a positive move towards wound care.
