Wrightington, Wigan and Leigh NHS Foundation Trust

Your Turn is often approached by Tissue Viability Nurses wanted to launch awareness days.  This was the case in Wigan when Lindsey Bullough and Karen Patterson requested the support of the campaign for an awareness day aimed at the general public.

With the support and guidance of the Your Turn team the initial idea has grown from an awareness day to a structured supported campaign involving public health, nursing homes, care agencies, social services, community district nurses and the hospital.

The Your Turn team are providing extensive support and planning to deliver the initial six months of a pressure ulcer prevention strategy which will result in the reduction of community acquired pressure ulcers and an increase in general awareness across the borough.
