Wound care Appointments
DDRC Wound Care are pleased to confirm that we are recommencing clinics from Monday 27th July 2020. Initially, our nurses will be offering appointments for basic nail trimming only and clinics will not run every day.
We have made some changes to our procedures in line with current 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.
You will receive further information about attending for your appointment when you book. Call 01752 237111 or email [email protected]
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. Read an article about the service in Plymouth Magazine
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?
