What is DDRC Wound Care?
Based in the beautiful marine City of Plymouth, 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
Initially created to provide specialist wound care services to everyone in need of our services, the activities and expertise of DDRC Wound Care has attracted interest from the public, industry and the NHS, since its inception.
We have worked with others to deliver wound care research and events for specialists with a professional interest in tissue viability and wound care.
DDRC Wound Care runs as part of DDRC Medical Services Ltd., a not-for-profit trading subsidiary of the UK registered charity ‘DDRC Healthcare’.
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.
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.
(We are currently working with NHS Commissioners to try and provide access for NHS funded patients.)
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.
