Pennine Acute NHS Trust Launches Stop Pressure Ulcer Day

On Thursday 15th - Wednesday 21st November Pennine Acute NHS Trust will be throwing the spotlight onto the issue of pressure ulcers.

The week long campaign, which is just the start of a long term programme, is designed to raise public awareness of pressure ulcers, how to prevent them and who is likely to be at risk.

Working alongside Your Turn and the main commercial organisations who work with Pennine Acute NHS Trust in the area of woundcare, the Trust hopes to make huge inroads into the prevention of avoidable pressure ulcers in the hospitals.

Coinciding with the launch in the hospitals Pennine Care in Oldham is also launching a community driven campaign that aims to raise awareness in the community.  Working with GP's, pharmacies, care agencies and district nurses this campaign will see thousands of leaflets being handed out and awareness posters put up in public places.
