Tissue Viability Service

We are a team of Tissue Viability Specialist Nurses working across West Sussex, Brighton & Hove and High Weald, Lewes and Havens (HWLH).

Our service provides advanced specialist advice and support to patients, carers, health care staff and allied health professionals who are caring for adults with complex wound management needs and those at risk of developing wounds such as pressure damage and leg ulcers. This service is provided to patients in their own homes, community hospitals, general practice surgeries and other clinic settings.
