Dopplers for Tissue Viability
The League was delighted to fund doppler kits for the Tissue Viability team, helping them to assess the circulation of patients with leg ulcers and prevent unnecessary delays in continuing or commencing compression therapy. This therapy is a gold standard intervention to both prevent and improve leg ulcers. Kylie (far left), the Tissue Viability Nurse Specialist, said: “As a team, part of our improvement strategy it to improve lower limb care across the East Kent Hospitals Trust and with the League’s support, we can now begin to do this. We are forever grateful."
