Leg Ulcer Treatment

Our Practice Nurses treat leg ulcers in the surgery, and, for housebound patients only, it is possible for leg ulcer dressings to be done at home by the District Nurses. Our nurses have a Doppler machine which looks at the blood supply in the leg to assess flow before using compression bandaging. Patients with complicated or slow to heal leg ulcers, can be referred to the Community Tissue Viability Service where the ulcer will be assessed and recommendations for treatment made.
