Wound Care advice and service resumes following the pandemic restrictions
DDRC Wound Care are pleased to confirm that we are offering appointments for basic nail trimming and wound assessment. If we are unable to offer ongoing wound care appointments, we will prepare a plan of care that can be followed by another healthcare professional, or in some cases carer. Clinics are not held every day but appointments can be discussed by calling 01752 237111or emailing firstname.lastname@example.org
We have made some changes to our procedures and these continue despite recent changes to government recommendations. You will need to wear a face covering or mask for the duration of your appointment. We can provide one if you do not have a covering of your own. We also ask that you attend the appointment unaccompanied unless you require specific assistance that requires the attendance of a carer. The carer must also wear a face covering or mask.
What is DDRC Wound Care?
Plymouth based DDRC Wound Care was established in 2011 to offer private specialist care to the public for a variety of wounds with emphasis on treating difficult to heal, post-operative and chronic wounds, including leg ulcers.
The service is led by highly qualified and experienced Tissue Viability nurses who are able to support patients with an independent and individual care plan. We have access to the latest wound healing technology, techniques and dressings.
We are registered with the Care Quality Commission (CQC) (latest report) in recognition of providing safe, quality care to a set of recognised essential standards. Patient feedback can be uploaded to the CQC website and you can read comment received from others on our own Feedback Section.
DDRC Wound Care runs as part of DDRC Medical Services Ltd., a not-for-profit trading subsidiary of the UK registered charity ‘DDRC Healthcare’.
How Do I Access Your Wound Care Services?
At present we see all patients on a privately funded basis. The initial assessment is £80 for complex wounds or £50 for acute or post-surgical patients. The cost of any future care delivery plan will discussed at the initial assessment.
Our wound care services are delivered separately to the hyperbaric oxygen therapy provided by DDRC Healthcare, but we are able to share skilled, experienced staff and facilities.
We also offer: Toe nail clipping, (especially important for the diabetic foot) and holiday wound care for when you are away from home
