Simple Wound Care Service 
What is this service:
Most cuts and grazes can be treated at home and will start to heal in a few days. But some wounds may need to be treated by a medical professional if there’s a risk of infection, if the injury is serious, or if you have recently had an operation.

Simple wound care services are available to all patients over the age of 16 who are registered with a GP practice in Barking & Dagenham, Havering or Redbridge.

The services support patients with managing wounds such as skin ulcers, first degree burns, post-surgical sutures, clips removal and routine dressings.

How does it work?
You will be advised to book an appointment by your doctor or a nurse if you have a wound that needs to be cared for with a dressing.
You can book an appointment seven days a week at a time convenient to you.
Appointments are available Monday to Friday from 8am-6.30pm and on Saturday and Sunday between 9am-5pm.
How can I make an appointment?
You can book an appointment online by clicking on the link in the leaflet  or by contacting the team on one of the numbers.  please click on attached leaflet link.
